Mr. Lu, in charge for the emperor,
retired and built a family temple,
which became my primary school.
Our desks were made from the coffins
down in his grave.
That campaign was called
Smash The Four Olds!
I was often late,
like the great Lu Xun,
and also like him carved a 早
the character for “early”,
with my pocket knife into the rosewood.

[zǎo]

Herr Lu, kaiserlicher Beamter im Ruhestand
baute einen Familientempel.
Das war meine Volksschule.
Unsere Tische in der Klasse
kamen von Särgen in seinem Grab,
im Rahmen der Kampagne
“Zerschlagt die vier Alten!”.
Ich kam oft zu spät zum Unterricht.
Und wie der Dichter Lu Xun
schnitzte ich mit meinem Taschenmesser
in mein Pult aus Mahagoni
das Zeichen für “früh”.
