The Sea, Eastward

这么多年,我一直瞩目向东的海 那片辽阔的海域有着诗经的光芒 宏阔的海面,潮烟不舍昼夜替我醒着 一浪高过一浪的拍击,在悲喜交集中相遇 它是我的故乡,我却难以抵达那乡愁的潮涌 在西部,我一直携着蓝色的梦,倾听它有力的轰鸣 我无法在下一个潮汛来临之前波澜不惊 无法搁置它一直向东的倔强的信仰 在异乡失序的我总是向东眺望 从开始渴望的倾诉到写下这首诗 我宿命的海,收藏着闪电的海,携带着辉光的海 让我魂牵梦绕的海,向死而生的海…… 这必定是我一个人的疆域,我进入它的内部 向东,向东,泪水忽然就涌了出来


For so many years, I have been watching the eastward sea The expansive sea area is bright with the ray of Book of Poetry The boundless sea-surface, the tidal waves are awake for me day and night Lashing waves upon waves, meeting in the gamut of emotions It is my hometown, but it is difficult to reach the surging tide of nostalgia In the west, I always bring a blue dream, listening to its forceful roaring I cannot remain calm before the arriving of the next tide I cannot shelve its stubborn eastward faith Disordered in a strange land, I always look eastward From the original yearning outpouring to this poem My fated sea, the sea which collects lightning, the sea with brilliance The sea which makes me lost in a reverie, the sea which was born toward death … This must be my own territory, and I enter its interior Eastward, eastward, tears suddenly streaming down
