Floating Mountain Tea Farm
(Jurong, Jiangsu Province, China)

浮山茶场
(中国江苏省句容)

The air breathes clearer up here as we peer over a weathered edge into a caldera so primordial even the dinosaur had yet to gleam in the evolutionary eye. This is the rim of something larger— an ancient Vulcan in a spleen—who blew out his side to level all below beneath ash and super-heated pumice. And here, above the low mists that snake in from the Yangtze, we walk the mottled paths between the ranks of tea, all bursting green in the May sunshine, enough to launch whatever imaginary craft sails the wonder that brought us here.

 

我们进入火山口边缘时的空气 变得清晰而爽朗,这饱经风霜之处 是如此的原始,在进化的眼睛里 甚至那时恐龙都还没有出现。 这是更大范围的边缘, 发怒的火神吹灭了他身旁的一切, 拉平超热的火山灰和浮石。 这里高于从长江曲折来的迷雾, 我们在一行行茶树之间 斑驳的田里行走,一切 在五月的阳光下显得碧绿, 足以扬起想象中精巧的风帆, 这个把我们带来此地的奇迹。

Slender West Lake

瘦西湖

Water softens everything: iron, green tea grown at the edge of Jurong’s caldera, the boat girl singing ballads older than the gondolier, and a dry tongue. Like trees soften lines of building, water reduces the critic to the taste of fresh mellon. Even the re-imaged Ming village, its labyrinthine alleys, becomes a calligraphy Li Po might recognize. A child in China is a child in Ghana is a child in Kansas and the bellows of the bluster-priests like wind howling in a tunnel, like a rain man in the Panhandle, cannot make water other than what it is.

 

水使一切变得柔和:软化铁, 使句容死火山口边缘的绿茶 变柔和,使船姑娘唱的民歌—— 比贡多拉船夫唱的还古老的民歌 变柔和,使人们解渴。 像树使建筑物线条变柔和一样, 水把挑剔者的犀利减轻 到新鲜甜瓜的甜度。 甚至重新想象的明代村庄 连带它弯弯曲曲的小巷 变成了李白会认识的书法。 中国的加纳的堪萨斯的儿童都一样, 喧嚷的鼓吹者咆哮就像隧道里的风, 也像在锅柄状地带骗钱求雨的雨人, 不能把水制造成其它的东西。
