2009

11 years ago I was happy.
Our daughter had her first day of school,
she was just turning 7.
We knew she was smart, talented, beautiful.
We were rather worried about her brother,
he had hardly started to talk
and wasn’t always well treated in Kindergarten.
But we found a new place where he was happy,
and we were happy for Maia.
Our kids are born in Beijing,
2002 and 2005. China will always be part
of their identity. Both of them know that.
They don’t want to lose their Chinese,
although there are lots of other problems.
Maia’s primary school wasn’t good for her.
Leo’s primary school wasn’t bad,
he just takes a very long time
for reading and writing. Both of them are
native speakers of English. German is
taken for granted, although it’s harder
than English and Chinese. Yeah, I know,
it takes so much effort to write in Chinese,
to read and write. But maybe Leo would have done better
in Chinese at first, maybe not.
English for sure. Anyway,
we had other problems.
Leo is doing better now,
and Maia is in a good high school.
She is 18.
Guess I should be happy.

POETRY IN CRISIS? 庄生访谈:十一问 – 11 QUESTIONS asked by Zhuang Sheng

三月 19, 2020

11 QUESTIONS asked by Zhuang Sheng

1. Could you please introduce yourself?
Martin Winter, Chinese name 维马丁, poet and translator from Chinese into German and English.
2. Where did you spend this year’s Spring Festival?
At home in Vienna. Yi Sha 伊沙 and six other poets from China (Tu Ya 图雅, Jiang Huhai 江湖海, Xiang Lianzi 湘莲子, Pang Qiongzhen 庞琼珍, Bai Li 白立 and Chun Sue 春树) had just left, after spending over two weeks in Austria in January. You could also say we had Spring Festival together, in Innsbruck in Tyrol in the alps, with poets there, and in Vienna, also with friends. Bai Li was our best cook, and all of them made really good food, we made Jiaozi together, you know, Chinese dumplings, and many other dishes. Yi Sha likes to cook tomatoes and eggs, very simple dish, but very good. We celebrated together, and they went back one day before the lunar new year.
3. How has this virus crisis affected you?
Actually, here in Austria it has only just started to affect everyone. Schools are closed, also most shops. I have been working from home before already, so there is no big change. But I have to be afraid of both short-term and long-term effects in the publishing world, in China and in Europe.
4. How do you spend your time now?
I work from home, so the only big change is that my wife and my son are also home all day. My daughter already has her own apartment, but it is close by. She moved in February, when it was still normal. She was with us on the weekend, we are going to see her again tomorrow or so. People are supposed to stay at home, but you can go shopping for food, medicine, tobacco.
5. How is your mood these days?
Ok, maybe a little worried, but ok, not bad.
6. What are you most satisfied with from before this crisis? Can you give an impression of the efforts against the virus in your location?
My poems. My work. My family, friends, contacts, local and international. The measures against the virus here in Austria and in Vienna have only just started in earnest. There is some criticism that tourism was stopped too late in Tyrol. People who came to ski from all over Europe, and some got sick there, maybe a lot.
7. What is the best thing you have eaten during this crisis?
My wife is at home, so she cooks more. She likes to buy lamb and beef from the Muslim halal butcher at the vegetable market close by. Our vegetables are from there too. My son likes to help with cooking. Today they made lasagna, from scratch. Most food shops are open, even some restaurants for take out. Some Chinese shops have closed. Hope there are still one or two open in the city. But that’s just for spices and sauces like 老干妈.
8. What has worried your family and relations in this crisis?
My parents stay at home. My sister lives very close to them, and her sons help them. One of them is studying to be a doctor, he was working in a hospital. Hope he is ok.
9. In this global crisis, what do you think about poets writing poetry? Have you written poetry in this time?
This is a very good time for writing, reading, translating, even for distributing and discussing poetry, at least online. I have followed the situation in China. People compared the slogans warning you not to go out, some of these were very nasty and violent, to the writing on boxes sent from Japan, relief goods for Wuhan. There was Tang poetry on there, to remind people of their common heritage. Something about mountains and streams, 山川異域, 風月同天. Reminds me of Du Fu, mountains and rivers remain. So people compared this ancient culture to the crude slogans and said we should learn from the Japanese. Then one guy wrote an article in the Yangtze daily 长江日报 on February 12 and quoted Adorno who said poetry after Auschwitz was barbaric, so we don’t need poetry from Japan, because of what the Japanese did in the war. Any simple slogan was better, no poetry required, he said. But Tang poetry is very much what defines China, Chinese culture, also poetry in general. So everyone trashed this guy online. And people wrote even more poetry than before, a lot of it related to the crisis. Poems for Dr. Li Wenliang, the eye doctor from Wuhan who was one of the early whistle-blowers in late December 2019, and got reprimanded, and continued to work and died from the virus. That was world news, everyone knows this, also here in Austria. So in China on the whole there is a creative burst in this crisis, which is a very good thing, it gives hope. Some of these new poems are really very, very good. Yes, I have written a few poems myself. Some are related to China. I’ll see how it goes here in Europe. People have to stay at home, so they have more time for artistic pursuits, making music, for example. Singing from the balconies.
10. When the crisis is over, what are you most eager to do?
Don’t know yet, it has only just started here. Go out, meet people. My book is coming out in China, “Finally We Have Snow”, translated by Yi Sha. Should have come out in February. So I had planned to present the book in China this spring, at the Austrian embassy in Beijing, and at other places, maybe Xi’an etc. Anyway, my expertise is in intercultural, international contact with Chinese language, literature, poetry. So I am most eager to work in this field.
11. What do you think about the global situation?
It has brought people together. It is good for the climate, hopefully also for the social climate locally and internationally. There are always people who play us and them, but people do have a lot in common, much more than we realize. And now we have this one thing in common, globally. Everybody seems to agree on that.

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.

MW June 2019

 

《时间》

维马丁诗
伊沙译

我写诗的最佳时间
是在我有时间的时候,
当我拥有这个世界上所有的时间
并且毫不在意。
我有足够的时间阅读
余华的每一部长篇小说和许多短篇小说,
只是因为他的语言感觉
莫言的《酒国》
还有高行健,全是中文。
我写诗不多。
玛雅还小。我在她出生前有时间。
其实,还是翻译做得更多
在乐友出生前就开始了。
不管怎样,我们在中国
永远。

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。

IT WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO

it was just ten years ago
ten and a half, a little more
ten years ago
feels like twenty years
this was our place
this was our house
our stairs
our door
this was our apartment
you were pregnant here
you climbed these stairs
to the seventh floor
with eighteen kilos more
in the summer
over 40 degrees celsius
humid, mosquitoes
this was our place
very small children
small bathroom
small tub
what a great luxury
terrace
plants are still there
the most important ones
pashanhu in chinese
what’s it called?
climbs up the railings,
the stuff we erected
only ten years ago,
twelve years ago,
fifteen years ago,
some of it.
the roofs,
the birds in the morning,
bats
the other buildings
the view,
the people,
the smells
we were

pricey and noble

everything becomes pricey and noble

last week the brazilian author ricardo domeneck wrote a noble commentary on Facebook that actually sounds a little dylanesque, partly. masters of war, yes. dynamite. 伊沙 has a great little nobel dynamite poem. from 1992. 今年的文学諾貝爾得主有一首 Masters of War,我有一首 “X&Y”, 伊沙翻譯成《一搭一挡》。講尼克松和他的外交部长、大陸前领導和他的首相等等。墙上還有“毛”字,因為伊沙1991年一首小詩。 we had a reading here in vienna on Oct. 15 in our new housing close to the new central train station. we have a library downstairs. run by people from our house, we are there often. open to other houses, gudrun and peter built a stage, and we have theatre. and we had a bob dylan night a few months ago. masters of war is a little like my poem X&Y. x was cruel/ butt is sore/ y was able/ and suave./ both loved culture/ both destroyed/ hundred million/ butts are cold. written march 2007 in beijing. yes, nixon and kissinger, mao and zhou, maybe there is a pair like that in brazil? only six or seven swedes in over 100 years of a great swedish prize for literature is actually not very much, is it? wonder if ricardo brazil/domeneck/africa ever read tomas tranströmer. oh well. pity this busy monster manunkind/ not. progress is a comfortable disease:/ your victim (death and live safely beyond) plays with the bigness of its littleness …[…] pity poor flesh and trees, poor stars and stones, but never this fine specimen …. listen: there’s a hell/ of a good universe next door. let’s go. there must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief …

yes, the music of jimi hendrix. dylan is honored as tip of the iceberg, should be chuck berry and many others at the same time. preferably african brazilian women. yes, manunkind maybe doesn’t always deserve something poor ricardo doesn’t always get, maybe. pity. oh yes.

奥地利国庆还要等二十几天 AUSTRIAN NATIONAL DAY

朋友们好!
照片上維也納,昨晚和今天上午。还有上个周末去的在多瑙河岛上的中国表演。看到多瑙河,还有火车总站附近我家旁边新公园、工地。这几天天气很暖和。早上 凉,中午和下午像夏天。九月份下雨很少。听说从莫扎特以后最热的九月份。这里除了周末之外十月初不放假。十一、十十等等节日几乎没人听说过。奥地利国庆十 月二十六日。1955年宣布中立为国庆日,奥地利能够相当富裕、自由、民主,没有像德国被分割,没有美国和苏联的军队等等就是1955年中立条约的成果。 可惜现在那時候建立的一切被威胁。被所谓自由党威胁。去年十月初維也納市选举那所谓自由的新纳粹党被打败了,虽然还拿到三分之一的选票。社会民主党得了百 分之四十左右,很明显的胜利。因为那时候他们非常明显地反對极右思想,很明显的跟公民社会一块照顾难民,就是很明显地給人家希望,虽然有腐败,虽然有不少 人愤怒,不少人失业,经济情况不一定乐观,而且全球化越来越不公平等等现象。去年胜利很明显,虽然还是很悬。而今年一年四次选總統,十二月初最后一次。极 右候选人还是很厉害。奥地利还是被威胁。

ICELAND – 伊沙

Yi Sha
ICELAND

That was 14 years ago
I was abroad for the first time
in Sweden
at a poetry festival in Nässjö.
I saw a female poet from Iceland,
she was reciting up on the stage
as if she was in bed
under a man reacting to him.
She was panting,
that was her voice.
She wrote in a poem:
“In a dark night in Island,
a woman
sticks a light bulb
into her vagina …”,
shocking even
our Chinese
lower body poetess.
But apart from the stage
she had no intercourse with anyone.
A lonely shadow,
a wandering soul.
Maybe like her country
on the map,
floating piece of ice
in the sea.

ISLAND

das war vor 14 jahren.
ich bin zum ersten mal im ausland,
in schweden.
auf dem poesiefestival in nässjö
seh ich eine dichterin aus island.
sie liest auf der bühne
als ob sie sich im bett
unter einem mann winden würde
ihre stimme
ist ein stöhnen.
“in einer langen nacht in island
steckt sich eine frau
eine glühbirne in ihre scheide …”
sie hat unsere chinesische dichterin
berühmt für ihre unterleibspoesie
umgeworfen.
aber außerhalb der bühne
spricht sie mit keinem menschen.
sie ist immer allein
eine wandernde seele.
so wie ihre nation
auf der karte,
eine eisscholle im meer.

《女儿说》

女儿說
小時候以為
太陽被白雲
關進監獄,
如果太阳够强大
可以突围。
黑云的时候
太阳很難过。
下雨
太阳在哭。
太陽是陰性,
女儿用德语。
除了这点,
中文
也说差不多。

DAUGHTER SAYS

My daughter says
“When I was small
I thought white clouds
threw the sun into prison.
If the sun was strong enough
it could break out.
If clouds were black
the sun was sad.
Rain
meant she was weeping.”
The sun is female
in German;
my daughter didn’t realize
this point,
but she knows in English
it’s “he”
and in Chinese “ta” 他.
“Ta” 她 can be many things
ta 她 ta 它 ta 牠 – he she it
and so on.

EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK – 伊沙 – DREI GEDICHTE VON 2002

 

Yi Sha 《傍晚的一個瞬间》
EINE SZENE AM ABEND

eine gruppe von teenagern
umringen und schlagen
eine schöne junge frau
mit fäusten und füßen
mit steinen
das war auf einer landstraße
im süden von frankreich
oder auf sizilien
das hab ich auf einmal im fernsehen gesehen
eine szene am abend
ich hab gewusst es war ein film
ich hatte noch etwas anderes zu tun
konnte nicht weiter schauen
ich fühlte mich ein bisschen schlecht
nicht nur ein bisschen schlecht
sondern selten schlecht
ich weiß schon
das hat mit der handlung konkret nichts zu tun
da kommt nur ein gefühl hoch
weil ich keinen bestimmten grund finden kann
häng ich in der luft
und find keinen halt

2002
Übersetzt von MW im Nov. 2015

《傍晚的一个瞬间》

一群少年
在围打一个
年轻的漂亮女人
用拳脚
用石块
那是在法国南部
乡村的土路上
抑或是西西里岛
发生的一幕情景
我是忽然在电视上
看到这组镜头
在傍晚的一个瞬间
并知道那是一部电影
当时因为还有别的事
我不可能再看下去了
有点难受
十分难受
异常难受
我自己知道
这和镜头展现的内容无关
只是内心的感情被激起来了
因为找不到确切的理由
所以空悬着
无法落在实处

EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK

eine frau
mit einer stahlsäge
sägt meine nerven
sie weiß
meine nerven
halten gar keine säge aus
sie weiß
was am meisten weh tut
das ist der klang
wenn eine stahlsäge
nerven durchschneidet
ihr guten menschen
hört
eine kleine nachmusik
euch wird weit ums herz und leicht um den sinn
ein sehr schönes gefühl
die nerven sind schon durchgesägt
aber nachher
sieht man kein blut
euch guten menschen
tut es unerträglich weh
ich hab noch das herz
euch zu sagen
ich hab ein herz aus stahlbeton
dass ich nicht gerührt bin
das kommt von einem einfachen grund
einem ganz banalen
ich möchte leben
mitten unter den leuten

《小夜曲》

一个女人
手持钢锯
锯我神经
她知道
我的神经
不堪一锯
她知道
最痛的
是哪一根
钢锯锯着
神经的声音
响起——
善良的人
听到的是
一支小夜曲
心旷神怡
好高兴
神经被锯断
之后是
不见血的
善良的人
痛不欲生的
我还有心
告诉你们
我的铁石心肠
我的不为所动
是出自怎样一条
朴素的底线
那就是——
我想活着
活在人间

DIE GROSSE WILDGANSPAGODE BEHALT ICH,
HIER IST EINE KLEINE PAGODE FÜR DICH

meine reisegefährten sind aufgestiegen
auf die wildganspagode
ich streck meine glieder
tief hinten im garten am alten tempel
hab ich mich so angenehm angelehnt
zitherklang aus der oper liang zhu
und die alte glocke an die ich gestoßen bin
lassen mich in den schlaf sinken
ein tausendjähriger mittagsschlummer
kurz und traumlos
schwarz vor den augen
beim aufwachen
sind meine wangen ganz feucht
mein gesicht ist noch immer
im weinen befangen
ich hab doch keinen grund
es muss etwas sein
etwas größeres
höheres
etwas kleineres
niedrigeres
das mich gebraucht hat
um sich auszuweinen

2002
Übersetzt von MW im Nov. 2015

 

《大雁塔我留下
送君一座小雁塔》

同游者登塔去了
在庭院深处
长亭的一角
我四肢摊开
那么舒服地靠着
在《梁祝》的古筝
和由我自己撞响的
不绝于耳的古钟里
可以享受一次
千年的午寐
无梦的小睡
眼前很黑
醒来之时
却满脸泪水
哭的表情
在脸上凝固
我无所哭
一定是什么
那更大的
更高的什么
那更小的
更低的什么
借我一用
用我来哭

sondern wie er geliebt wird
