Bei Dao Poems

零度以上的风景是鹞鹰教会歌声游泳

是歌声追溯那最初的风

我们交换欢乐的碎片

从不同的方向进入家庭

是父亲确认了黑暗

是黑暗通向经典的闪电

哭泣之们砰然关闭

回声在追赶它的叫喊

是笔在绝望中开花

是花反抗着必然的旅程

是爱的光线醒来

照亮零度以上的风景
Landscape Over Cero

It's hawk teaching song to swim

It's song tracing back to the first wind

We trade scraps of joy

Enter family from different directions

it's a father confirming darkness

it's darkness leading to that lightning of the classics

a door of weeping slams shut

Echoes chasing its cry

it's a pen blossoming in lost hope

it's a blossom resisting the inevitable route

it's love's gleam waking to

light up landscape over zero


旅行日記

在火火車進入森林

雪災中的滅火器睡著

您屈尊聽過去,

建築地盤的燈亮了起來

心切開術

有人叮噹錘鍛造鐵離

所以微弱的心跳

跳向空中橋樑

帶新聞“最醜惡的角度

為了明天的城市

本節!投身到明天

孩子的病,有缺陷的措辭

而星天空的盲文

在空中揮動高青年的白旗

他們捕捉到今年的高原

在終點站你成為一個父親

通過開放領域邁進

峰已變成灰色,白色,因為昨天

公路轉轉身


Travel Diary

Before the fire-train enters the forest

The snowstorm in the fire-extinguisher falls asleep

You deign to listen to the past

Construction sites lit up by lamps

Hearts cut open in surgery

Someone dingdang hammers away forging iron

So feeble the heart-beat

Bridges jump into the air

Bring news' most seamy angle

To tomorrow's cities

Onward! Plunge into tomorrow

The child's sick-flawed wording

And a star-sky's braille

Waving high in the air youth's white flag

They capture the year's highland

At the terminus you become a father

Striding through open fields

Peaks have turned grey-white since yesterday

Roads turn face about
