Feeling at the End of the Summer

夏末有一种异样的阳光 像人到中年渐收起青芒 兴高彩烈的日子已属过去 心情若学童般回到课堂 远山已展示一种黛色 黃叶像独木舟漂在草上 那些纵情或懒散的往事 会在日記中渐渐淡忘 九月将有只多泪的眼睛 不像盛夏那樣地开朗 过掉孳长及饱满的一季 瘦了的秋等我們去欣赏


At the end of the Summer the sun changes its light As a middle-aged man becomes less sharp and bright Gone are all those exciting days of the season past Now the emotion is like back-to-school children The distant hills present a touch of darkish green Few yellow leaves fell on the lawn like drifting canoes The past events of either indulgence or laziness Will be gradually forgotten from your diaries Yet, September will have its wet and teary eyes Not as clear and bright as the mid-summer ones After the growing and saturation of the last season A thin Autumn is awaiting for our appreciation



一只巨鷹向西天扑去 如夸父般地追踪 也许它只想探一颗星 或为了一片霞紅 而海,這时已经半醺 泛出了酡紅的脸庞 不能忍受炽热的一吻 退隐在夜幕後方 这是一幅亙古的动画 过往的人都会瞩目 多看一眼不算是贪婪 一生有几回驻足? 人都說:夕阳无限好 只是留不住余辉 且回去将它认真捕捉 不悲落日和年岁


A huge eagle dashes toward the west sky Like Kua-Fu, ever chasing the sun* He may only want to search for a star Or, for the cloud’s rosy attraction Now, the sea looks half-drunk A red color has appeared on her cheek She can not bear a kiss from the hot sun And shies behind the night’s curtain This is an eternal picture of animation Whoever passes would stand and stare An extra look is not a greedy action In life how many stares have you taken? A setting sun is a boundless beauty They say, but no one can make it stay I’ll bring back and capture its image With no lament or complaint of age *In Chinese myth, Kua-Fu chases the sun all the time.
