[中国]唐诗
《那只鸟一定是我的爱人》

 

那只鸟起飞时,就朝着我的住址
它浑身雪白,仿佛在玉中
诞生。它飞得不快不慢,悠然从容
脸上全是天空的表情
它从不在飞行中尖叫长鸣,从不夸张,炫耀
小小的红爪上,提着的故事
也波澜不惊。它穿过白云,像送信的人
来了。它随着雨水,偶尔
滴下几滴相思的苦泪。它见过
高山积雪,大河结冰
它也见过一路的海棠花开败了
无数的人。它还见过
什么叫沧海桑田,什么叫坚贞不渝
它飞过了自己的眼睛
但从不飞过自己的口唇。它飞过了羽毛
但从不飞过内心。即使
电闪雷吼,也阻挡不了它的行程
即使翅膀老了,也不影响
它的满腔激情。就像它瞭望我时
海水便凝成了晶体
就像它呼唤我时,崇山峻岭
刹那间便消失得无踪
无影。我站在家门前的桃树下迎接它
我坚信:那只鸟一定是我的爱人

[China] Tangshi
The Bird Must Be My Lover

 

As the bird flew, she flew towards the place I’d lived
with her snowy white feather, as if she was born
in white jade. She flew leisurely at the speed, not fast, not slow
on her face with the sky’s expression.
On her way, she had never screamed, never exaggerated and never flaunted
in her tiny red claws, the story holding
was common. She flew through clouds as a postman
was coming. Flying in the rain occasionally
she shed a flew drops of bitter lovesick tears. She had met
the heavy snow on high mountains, the ice covered on the wide rivers
also met along her way the begonia flowers defeated
countless people. She also experienced
what gloom is , and what steadfastness is.
She flew over her eyes
but never flew over her beaks; she flew over her feather
but never flew over her heart. Even if
there were lightning and thundering ,they would not stop her journey;
even if her wings were old, they also did not affect
her great passion.
When she kept an outlook at me
As if the seawater had cemented to the crystal;
when she called me , as if the mountains
suddenly disappeared without a trace
and shadow.
I greeted her by standing under a peach tree in front of my house
I firmly believe: the bird must be my lover
