Picking Apples


Nor Northern Spies, Nor Granny Smiths. Yours Plump Russets Rouged and weighty. Or whatever. When I learned to pick apples, two-handed In the Niagara orchards, Weighing them in my palms, The old orchardman showed me. Letting gravity do its trick. Lifting them away. The ripe and wondrous falling. Their stems curled, a small leaf Fluttering like a sprouted wing. Lowering them into the canvas Cradled on his chest. And I had no idea then He was talking about you, Or about love.


不是“北方间谍”, 也不是“姥姥史密斯”。你的 “圆润乳色思” 红艳并且有些分量。 或咋样都行。。。 在尼亚加拉果园里 当我学习如何用双手采摘苹果时, 果园的老人示范我, 在手掌里掂量它们, 让自然引力发挥伎俩。 提起分开它们。 那成熟和奇妙的落下来。 其茎卷曲,一小片叶子 像发芽的翅膀飞舞。 放低它们到 围在胸前的布兜里。 当时我并不懂得 他是在说着你, 或者爱情。
