A Roadside Robin

一只褐腹的知更 在路旁啄一条蚯蚓 我走过时他只抬一抬头 不愿放弃他的战利品 我下意识地拍一下手 他只是倒退了几寸 似乎不甘放弃他的美味 重拍时,他才直飞树顶 我不知为甚要如此 和他去计较或相争 这可能是人类的优越感 做什么事都恣意任性 后来,我到远处窥探 他会不会回来找寻? 也许,他不齿我的作为 让我的歉意,无处可申


A robin with a brown belly Was picking a live worm at the roadside She only lifted her head when I passed by Unwilling to give up her captive I clapped my hands unconsciously She withdrew a few inches only As if she would not abandon her delicacy Until I did loudly, she flew away I don't know why I did this To compete or just to make a fuss Could it be our sense of human superiority That we do whatever we please I hide myself afar to steal a look Would she come back again? I am afraid she has already despised me And leaves my regrets with nowhere to rest


Old Age

一本书高搁以后 不知要到那年那月 拉起弓射出之前 找不到标的,也丢失了箭 听风在林梢穿过 便随着它,出神去远 看夕阳落海的美景 却仰慕一颗颤颤的黄昏星


After a book is shelved Who knows when it will be found A stretched bow not yet fired Finds no target, and arrows are lost Hearing the wind comb the forest's limbs I follow, and drift far away in thought Watching the sun descend into the ocean How I envy the trembling evening star.
