CHRISTMAS MEMORY – 伊沙 Yi Sha

CHRISTMAS MEMORY

In the early 1990s
the city I live in
didn’t celebrate Christmas.
The college I teach at did,
a foreign languages campus.
It was more like each class had it’s own party,
students and their foreign teachers
singing foreign Christmas carols
into the air from the classroom building
and into the sky looking for snowflakes
to sing with in harmony.
I would stop and listen,
feeling the civilization and beauty
patching my still raw wounds inside.

圣诞之忆 | 伊沙

在1990年代初期
我所在的城市
是不过圣诞节的
我任教的大学
一所外语学院过
更像是各班在开联欢会
学生与他们的外教
用外语唱的圣诞歌
从教学楼的窗口飘出来
为天空中有或没有的雪花
唱出和声
引我驻足倾听
感觉到文明与美好
内心的新伤在愈合
