等待

Waiting

为等待 那件断了线的毛衣 竞凉透了我的 一生

 

I'm waiting for the sweater, the one with the broken threads; it has chilled me to the bone waiting all my life.

城市化的苏南村庄

The Urbanized Villages in the South Jiangsu Province1

稀疏的树上不再有鸟巢, 村子里也不再有袅袅炊烟 缠绕早晨或黄昏的树梢; 不再有鸡鸣狗叫, 也不再有蛙鼓蝉噪。 死板的柏油路代替了 长草的柔软的田间小道; 闹头的汽车卡车喇叭声 代替了牛铃悦耳的叮当。 麦田被切割成舒适小区 里一个个小花园。 这就是我们享受着的农村城市化的现代生活。

 

There are no longer bird's nests in sparse trees nor any smoke rising from kitchen chimneys around the tree branches in the morning or evening; nor the crowing of cocks or the barking of dogs, nor the croaking of frogs or the shrilly chirping of cicadas. The soft sand paths with exuberant grass are replaced by the dead-faced asphalt roads and the ringing of cattle bells by the honking of cars, buses or trucks, and wheat fields cut into small yards of flowers in the comfortable home communities. This is the modern life we enjoy in the urbanized countryside. [1] It is reported in the mass media that areas in southern China become more prosperous, townization and citization proceed apace. Villages become more like market and xiang towns, and county towns and small cities become more like large cities. The urbanization process unfolding is caused not only by a stream of rural to-urban migrants but also by urbanization in place; that is, entire districts becoming more urbanized at all levels of the rural-urban continuum.

庐山雾

Fog on Mt. Lu2

晨曦中,我推开一扇窗户 顿时涌进团团浓雾 扑面而来的阵阵寒气 直逼我的五脏六腑 何处是五老峰 哪里是如琴湖 不见花径、仙人洞 难觅美庐 、锦绣谷 朦蒙胧胧的是花 隐隐约约的是树 层层叠叠的青翠之上 满是细细碎碎的水珠 遮蔽所有的悬崖 填平所有沟壑 美与凶险合谋设下陷阱 请小心你的脚步 哦,铺天盖地的庐山雾 来去无踪的庐山雾 似梦非梦的庐山雾 神秘莫测的庐山雾 你无中生有 有目共睹 你有中却无 难有证据 你随风转向肆意弥漫 你有形却无骨 翻手为云你真的很美 你覆手为雨让谁痛苦 那一年,一团难以预料的浓雾 竟让我们迷了道路 Notes: 庐山:地处中国江西省北部九江市庐山区,滨临 鄱阳湖,雄峙长江南岸。 五老峰:庐山东南处五座并列的山峰,仰望俨若 席地而坐的五位老翁。 如琴湖:庐山一湖,因湖形如琴而得名。 仙人洞:位于锦绣谷南端,相传吕洞宾修仙而居。 美庐:蒋介石和宋美龄生活过的别墅。 锦绣谷:庐山长约一段1.5公里的秀丽山谷,这里 四时花开,犹如锦绣,故名。

 

In the first faint rays of dawn When I opened a window, Rolls of fog rushed in To chill me to the bone. Where is the Five Old Men Peak3? And the Ruqin Lake4? All the scenic spots have disappeared--- The beautiful Flower Pathway, The mysterious Fairy Cave5, The magnificent Meilu Villa6 and The colorful Jinxiu Valley7. Dimly visible are flowers, Bushes, trees and plants. Layers upon layers of green Are covered with beads of water. Steep cliffs are all hidden from us, and Gullies and valleys covered with fog. Watch your step, and be careful about The trap set with beauty and peril. What a Mt. Lu fog! It comes from and goes nowhere, And looks mysterious Like a day dream. In a visible form without bones, Mt. Lu fog spreads willfully with the wind. It appeared and disappeared in an instant, and We've witnessed its magical transformation, But can hardly bear a solid evidence of it To convince other people with. Mt.Lu fog was beautiful one moment When it became white clouds, And it tortured us the next When it became a terrible rainstorm. We vividly remember we all lost our way That year when it appeared Suddenly and unexpectedly8. [2] Mt. Lu is a famous summer resort in Jiangsi Province, a national park which is situated between the Panyang Lake and the Yangtze River. [3] The five peaks in the southeast of the Mt.Lu, which look like five old men sitting together. [4] The lake in the Mt.Lu, which looks like a zither. [5] According to Eight Divinities Come through the Sea, a Taoist fairy tale, once upon a time, Lǚ Dong-bin, one of the eight divinities or immortal semi-gods, practiced austerities in this cave. [6] It refers to the villa where Chiang Kai-shek and his wife Soong Mei- ling stayed in their vacation. [7] It is a beautiful valley, 1.5 kilometers long, where there is a lush growth of flowers of every season. [8] The Eighth Session of the Eighth National Congress of the Communist Party was held in Mt.Lu, 1959.
