Howard Johnson (一個寫關於母親節詩詞的詩人)

有一首滿有名的母親節 是由Howard Johnson(1915)

我已經在網上找了很久 都找不到他的個人資料



不是英詩翻譯唷!! 因為我已經有翻譯了


\"M\" is for the million things she gave me,

\"O\" means only that she\'s growing old,

\"T\" is for the tears shed to save me,

\"H\" is for her heart of purest gold;

\"E\" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

\"R\" means right, and right she\'ll always be,

Put them all together, they spell


A word that means the world to me.

    Howard Johnson滿有名的,是一名作家兼作詞家,有被列名榮獲登入詞曲創作名人堂( Songwriters' Hall of Fame),他的生平簡介也是在那裏就可以找到囉:http://www.songwritershalloffame.org/exhibit_bio.a... Hall of Fame網上有關Howard Johnson的資料,整理出來的中文大意翻譯如下:作詞家霍華強森1887年6月2日生於康乃狄克州,接受一些私人音樂教育之後,前往波士頓地區的一些戲院與劇場,展開身為鋼琴師的職業生涯。1914年加入美國海軍,第一次世界大戰期間曾參加服役。戰後,他搬到紐約市,在一家出版社擔任編制內的作家(其實就是中文媒體的記者或主編),他也開始與一些知名作詞家與作曲家聯手創作。霍華強森的知名作品很多,版主寫道的 “M-O-T-H-E-R”在這裏就有被提出來。霍華強森1941年5月1日逝世於紐約。全文如下 =
