如果你在京郊的乡村路上漫游 你会经常遇见羊群 它们在田野中散开,像不化的雪 像膨胀的绽开的花朵 或是缩成一团穿过公路,被吆喝着 滚下尘土飞扬的沟渠 我从来没有注意过它们 直到有一次我开车开到一辆卡车的后面 在一个飘雪的下午 这一次我看清了它们的眼睛 (而它们也在上面看着我) 那样温良,那样安静 像是全然不知它们将被带到什么地方 对于我的到来甚至怀有 几分孩子似的好奇 我放慢了车速 我看着它们 消失在愈来愈大的雪花中


On the country roads outside Beijing you're sure to spot sheep scattered over fields, like unmelted snow or swollen blooms burst open. They cross the road in clumps, the herdsman barking them down a weedy ditch, tripping and tumbling through the dust. I never paid much attention until one afternoon in flurries of snow I nosed close behind a sheep truck, the dark eyes gazing down gentle and quiet, not knowing where they were headed. They turned toward me then, curious as children. I let the car drift back through the thickening curtain of snow and watched them disappear.
