WE PLANT SUNFLOWERS – Li Khin-huann

阮種日頭花
We Plant Sunflowers

李勤岸Li Khin-huann
Translated by Tiunn Boo-thinn 譯

We planted sunflowers at Parliament
To bring some sunshine inside
To bring all that mold to light
To bring the people’s rights to light

We planted sunflowers on the president’s lawn
To throw the floodgates wide open
And flood away the steel webs of a dictator
And let the young whales of democracy swim on, and on and on

We planted sunflowers in the streets
To bloom come rain and bloom come wind
To bloom for always and for all days
By the darkening roads we must yet take

We’re planting flowers in every alley and every valley
In the cities and in the country
In the mountains and by the sea

The sun will still flower
May the will of young hearts
Rise up high in our free skies

WE PLANT A SUNFLOWER

we plant a sunflower in parliament
to draw in the sun
stir up the poor state of our congress
stir it up for the rights of our people

we plant a sunflower in the president’s palace
to call a young sea spirit of Taiwan democracy
to stir up a flood
to sweep away the iron nets of dictatorship

we plant a sunflower on every street
to brave wind and rain
to stir and bloom
to shine a light on our dark road ahead

we plant a sunflower on every corner
in the village in the city
on the mountains at the sea
to stir and bloom
our spirit of youth
will brighten our homeland and our skies

阮kā日頭花種tiàm立法院
吸引日光照入來
Kā臭殕ê國會曝曝咧
Kā人民ê權利曝曝咧

阮kā日頭花種tiàm總統府
予台灣民主ê少年海翁
泅做大水流ê烏潮
溢過獨裁ê鐵線網

阮kā日頭花種tī滿街路
無管透風抑落雨
阮堅持一直開花
堅持照明台灣暗淡ê路途

阮kā日頭花種tī逐角落
種tī庄腳種tī都市
種tī山頂種tī海邊
日頭會一直開花
青春ê意志
會照光咱台灣家己ê天

SUNFLOWERS
Translated by Alice Lee 英譯

The eyes of the young are bright,
Opening into big sunflowers
To clearly see molds on the dark undersides.

The ears of the young are sharp,
Opening into big sunflowers
To hear the sadness behind pleasant words.

The brains of the young are fine,
Opening into big sunflowers.
Petals and petals of brilliant rays of light,
Piercing through the wall of fog ahead.

The sunflowers of justice,
Flower by flower,
Blossoming upon faces of the stalwart,
Blossoming within the island’s dark age.

The radiant sunflowers,
Flower by flower,
Herald the coming of our daybreak.

少年人ê目睭真金
開出大大蕊ê日頭花
會當看清生菇ê陰暗面

少年人ê耳空真利
開出大大蕊ê日頭花
會當聽著好聽話背後ê悲哀

少年人ê腦筋真活
開出大大蕊ê日頭花
一瓣一瓣ê光芒
鑿破頭前阻擋ê罩雺

正義ê日頭花
一蕊一蕊
開tī青春堅強ê面上
開tī島嶼暗暝ê世代
光phiâng-phiâng ê日頭花
一蕊一蕊
照出咱天光ê明仔載
