A Bench

我说有这样一条长椅已足够 有太阳照在这条长椅上已足够 有带盐味的风从海上吹来 吹这条长椅和坐在长椅上的我 已足够—— 我不需要什么道路 我走过的所有道路都使我疲倦 也不需要什么未来 呵呵,生命的未来啊 一想到这两个字…… 就看到远处的轮船隆隆驶过 冲浪者,一会儿旋上浪尖 一会儿又跌入浪谷 我钟情晚年的平静如少年钟情激越 一条长椅可以坐一下午 一条长椅也可以坐完余生


I say it is sufficient that I have such a bench. It is sufficient that the sun shines on the bench. A salty wind from the sea blows The bench and me who is sitting on it. It is sufficient. I do not need any road. All the roads I have traveled tired me. Nor do I need any future. Ho, the future of life. Upon thinking of it, I see ships in the distance rumble past, Surfers, at one minute, rush up revolving on the top of waves, At another minute, fall between them. I love the calm of the old age as I love the excitement of the youth. On a bench, I can sit for the whole afternoon. On a bench, I can sit for the rest of the life.
