The First Snow of the New Century (a Group of Poems)

1.The Snow’s Present Continuous Tense

Only the great readers exist,
The possibility of great poems are created

A snow covers all the ideas and daydreams about the snow
My god, this snow is cold and forbearing, which makes people unprepared
It’s great to cover up all the greatness, so it attracts
a group of solemn snow thinkers as statues, and even

A row of scattered hoof prints. Before it snowed Dante seemed to hear
Beyat Ritchie’s affectionate call. In the snow Liu Zongyuan
Unexpectedly meets an old man who is fishing alone①
A great nation, only half a day from a snow

The snow is still falling…it has nothing to do with
the subject of a snow. A wolf is very excited in the artistic conception of snow
Its voice is far rougher and sexy than a hungry hunter
“Beauty—” is crying out at the top of her lungs in the knee-deep snow

The poet burst into tears. Heaven and earth are caught
in a layer of white dream. An unworldly little crow
Is moved by a bit black color that is left by himself
The first snow of the new century ignited the long-lost desire of the snow blindness people


2.The Snow Town’s Pouch Bag

The wolves’ warm crying, embroidered the first touch of dawn color to the snow village
This is a temperate northwest mountainous area
“From the first day to the fifth day, the fifth day’s moon is higher
The spring breeze blows willows oh willows shoots”②

A spring snow in before Christ is vast and solemn
The frozen Wood Road Along Cliffs, is connected with the ancient battlefield without visiting,
A war that stopped the close fighting
How to evolve into and dissolve into the famous snow storm

In the history of the Hexi Corridor. The disappeared ruts, valley wind
And the details that make people worried are repeatedly omitted from history books
Among the mountains, and above the snow town, a three-color pouch bag
Makes the snow, and history—broken a quarter of an hour


3. Snow Leopard

The snow is falling… the injured snow leopard is strong and male
He has been commanded, all the prominent families in this area
Now he has been slowly getting old, and even his roar
Also sounds like a bit pale, without the glory of his mature period

On northward cliff, an old, wounded snow leopard
Is a forgotten landscape
He still stands tall in the snow
How many bones of his fellows remained on this hoarse river bank

The snow of the new century is falling in northwest mountains
Which is the glory of an era. Snow leopard is almost extinct many years ago
Arty travelers, with a pile of smudged snow
Piled up in front of the camp: a handsome young snow leopard


Note: 1 In Liu Zongyuan’s poem “ Snow and River”, there is a sentence “Fishing Alone In Snow On A River”.
2 Quoted from the Shanxi folk song “Embroidery Pouch Bag”
