Chen Gengqiao

Mr. Tang is holding his slingshot,
he brought down seven pigeons in one afternoon.
Points out one with a ring on its foot:
“This is a carrier pigeon,
tastes nothing special,
just about like normal pigeons.”

Translated by MW, June 2020


Chen Gengqiao

Herr Tang mit seiner Schleuder
hat an einem Nachmittag sieben Tauben erwischt.
Er zeigt auf eine mit einem Ring an ihren Fuß:
„Das ist eine Brieftaube,
schmeckt eh nicht besonders,
ungefähr so wie sonstige Tauben.“

never seen so many deer in my life
never seen so many, so many deer
up on the hill round the old castle
hermitage hunting lodge
little bit like a small belvedere
I mean the belvedere in vienna
but this is the forest,
as wild as it gets
next to a big city.
this is a very magical place.
herds upon herds.
some of the herds all have great antlers
some deer are black.
some are all white.
most deer are brown, as I have known them.
but I have never seen white deer before
nor seen a herd all with such antlers.
maybe small elk.
don’t know how they’ re called.
people walk by,
people ride through them,
riding on bicycles.
I am a little vary of them.
if they came charging,
what would we do?
my daughter maia is not afraid,
she walks right up to them.
some are a few meters away,
then they withdraw.
there are small kids,
not very shy.
two very small deer,
we are between them and their mother.
I wonder what happens if one is injured,
if one is sick.
do they care for each other?
once a year there are hunters,
we hear.
there is a barn,
maybe food for the winter.
kristian shows us mint by the road.
this is a long walk in the evening,
though it’s not very far.
you see the sea, you hear the train,
you even hear sirens
somewhere on roads outside the forest.
it was a long, magical walk.
if you live here, so close to the deer,
so close to the sea
you have a wonderful, privileged life.
one more thing: wikipedia says
the constitution was celebrated
june 5, 1854
30.000 people
in front of Hermitage hunting lodge
I wonder what the deer thought of that.
