TIME

My best time for writing poetry
was when I had time,
when I had all the time in the world
and nary a care.
I had time enough to read
Yu Hua’s every novel and many stories,
just because of the feel of his language
and Republic of Wine by Mo Yan
and Gao Xingjian, all in Chinese.
I didn’t write many poems.
Maia was small. I had time before her.
Actually, translating more poetry
began just before Leo was born.
Anyway, we were in China
forever.

Shen Haobo
HONG KONG

for thirty years
every single year
spring days waning
cicadas come calling
that one day
people there
come out in the streets
light candles for us
observe our memory
grieve
for us
they do not forget

the only city on earth

2019.6.13
Translated by MW, 6/15/19

“I don’t dare to share this poem in my WeChat groups. Unfortunately, most people in mainland China have no idea at all what happens abroad. They don’t know anything. Least of all that Hong Kong is a very special city with a great heart full of love and freedom. And for us Chinese people, that single one city on earth is slowly disappearing.”

Translated by MW, 6/15/19

 

《香港》

沈浩波

三十年来
从未间断
每逢春日渐逝
蝉声响起
的那一天
那里的人
就会上街
替我们点上蜡烛
替我们祭奠
替我们
悲伤
替我们不遗忘

地球上仅此一城

2019.6.13

可惜这首诗写完后我都没敢在朋友圈发出来。大部分大陆人根本不知道[外国]那边正在发生什么。什么都不知道。更没有什么人知道,香港这座城市,有一颗伟大的拥有爱和自由的心。而这对于华人来说的,地球上仅有的城,恐怕也将慢慢消失了。

《当年的情书残片》
伊沙

1. 咱们是
同一战壕里的战友
我亲爱的女同志

2. 在祖国上下一派
莺歌燕舞的大好形势下
你的江山如此多娇
引无数英雄竞折腰

3. 我怀着朴素的阶级感情
怀揣一颗红亮的心
想与你交流交流思想

4. 向毛主席保证
我爱你海枯石烂心不变
比爱毛主席还要爱你

5. 东风吹着你的小辫儿
你红扑扑的小脸
比红旗还鲜艳

6. 我心中潮水般汹涌
翻腾着一股小资情调
我已经等不及了

7. 亲爱的女同志
我想犯回错误
就一次

8. 此致
无产阶级文化大革命的
崇高敬礼

(1993)
