The Floating Mountain

被云托起的山 一定很轻 它的分量被传说抽空 被众多的树根和蝉鸣抽空 雨来的时候它浮在云上,被风吹动 浮山不高,一只山雀轻易飞过 丢下的脆鸣,顺着山坡婉转跳跃 山溪,流出扬子海深处的清冽 温暖的红沙壤仍埋藏滚烫的岩火 它催开的花朵泄露远古的秘事


The mountain, lifted by clouds, must be very light. Legend has evacuated its weight as have the trees and chirping cicadas. When the rain comes, the mountain floats on a cloud, shaken by the wind. The mountain is not high. A titmouse flies over it easily, leaving its crisp song rolling like silk down the hill. Its stream flows with a crystal chill from the ancient Yangtze sea. The warmth of its red, sandy soil comes from deep-buried magma. It urges flowers to blossom and leak out its ancient secrets.
