---- 回想儿时江南

Short Songs (I)
---- Childhood Memories of Zhejiang

梅雨 细雨霏霏不止 我枯坐在小楼上 水鹁鸪叫个不停 我望著远山出神 嚮往山後的睛川历历 昨日刚读过的唐诗 一声卖枇杷的叫喊 把我从憧憬中唤醒 锁回蒙蒙的梅雨里 白蛇 睛落管里 落下了一片白色的 蛇皮。白娘娘的化身 在我家屋顶? 也许、许仙就坐在 昨午的拱桥上 撑著伞 显得万般无奈 狐仙 雷打得阵阵惊魂 我下意识地盯著 书房昏暗的角落 门後的动静 书桌之下 忽然间,毛肯悚然 一只飞逸的白猫 岂是传说中的狐仙?


Plum Rain The drizzle never ends I sit purposelessly in my upstairs room The cuckoo cries Staring at the distant mountain I lose My thoughts, aspiring to the sparkling streams I read yesterday in Tang poetry A vender's cry for loquats Calls me from my revery and seals me back into the fine plum rain. White Snake* From the downspout drops out A piece of whitish snake skin Could it be the White Snake avatar Rooming in my roof? Perhaps, Mr. Hsu, was the man Sitting on the bridge yesterday noon With an umbrella in hand. He looked so helpless. * A popular legendary story where White Snake and Mr. Hsu are lovers and couple. Fox Fairy** The thunder boomed loudly I stared subconsciously At the dark corners of the study Stirrings behind the door And underneath my desk Suddenly, my hair raises A white cat dashes out of the room Could it be the legendary Fox Fairy? ** Fox Fairy is also a popular story in China.
