BERG DER SEELE – 伊沙 Yi Sha

五月 8, 2017

Yi Sha 《灵山岛》
BERG DER SEELE AUF DER INSEL

es gibt einen berg der seele
in der mitte einer insel
meer und himmel, oben und unten
dasselbe blau
viel zuviel blau
wir sind auf dem gipfel gestanden
rund um die insel gewandert
und in die feenwelt eingetreten
ganz wie im sprichwort
damals war ich jung und feurig
hab den mund vollgenommen wie nur ein student
ich hab zu dir gesagt: wenn ich
in dem was mir vorschwebt
am ende verliere
dann komm ich hierher
für den rest meines lebens
du hast gelächelt
und geschwiegen
ah! damals im sommer
war ich zweiundzwanzig
zehn jahre danach
war ich ein verlierer auch schon zehn jahre
und hab ganz ruhig als verlierer gelebt
und wollt gar nirgends hingehen
in diesem jahr zehn jahre später
hat dieser verlierer beschlossen
durch und durch als verlierer zu leben
wenn er jetzt zurückdenkt
an diese reise
an den wunderschönen berg auf der insel
bereut er nur eines
warum haben wirs nicht getan
du und ich
in der feenwelt
soviel wir nur konnten

《灵山岛》

伊沙

有座灵山
在岛中间
上下是海天一色的蓝
太多的蓝
我们站在山顶
然后环岛而行
用句俗话说
那叫步入仙境
那时少年轻狂的我
满嘴的学生腔
我对你说:如果
我设想的人生
最终失败了
我就上这儿来
度过余生
你笑了
什么也没说
唉!那年夏天
二十二岁的我
无法设想
十年后的我
已做了十年的失败者
安心地做
也没想过去哪儿
也是在十年后的这一年
他已做出决定
做一个彻头彻尾的失败者
关于那次旅行
关于美丽的灵山岛
他现在回想起来
只是有些遗憾
为什么不做爱呢
在仙境里
和你做
更多的爱

CEMETERY – 万靈節在維也納

CEMETERY

The cemetery is up on the hill
not far from the madhouse and worse
in the war but a beautiful park.
The cemetery has a beautiful view
on western Vienna, where I grew up
and half of the city.
Cemeteries are beautiful places
cultures of memory. Beautiful stones;
what happens if no-one pays?
Who has a flag, who has an eagle;
which fatherland did he fly and die for
in 1938?
We have two graves, with my mother or father
we visit three. Two years ago my grandmother died,
we were very close.
Who is and who isn’t down in our grave?
The one with our name,
every family has several names;
places and sites, countries and questions.
Up on the hill close to the entrance,
down and secluded not very far.
Vienna has many beautiful hills
and a beautiful river
and many waters and many souls.
Rest in peace. Thank you.

SPIRIT ROAD – 伊沙 Yi Sha

七月 4, 2015

Yi Sha
SPIRIT ROAD

at the Eastern Tombs
they have a Spirit Road
when our lady guide
told us this path
was for calling the spirits
all of us poets
everyone diverted their feet
no matter which camp
intellectual or earthy
of the Third Generation
or the ones In Between
those with something to say
and those without
anyone who touched on the road by mistake
thought he stepped on a mine
and jumped back to the side
the road of the spirits
no trace of the living
no footprints at all

Yi Sha STRASSE DER SEELEN

《东陵有条灵魂之路》

在东陵
有一条灵魂之路
当导游小姐
告诉我们
它作招魂之用时
所有诗人的脚
都小心翼翼地
回避开它
不论民间的
还是知识分子的
不论第三代的
还是中间代的
不论有话要说的
还是无话可说的
偶有不慎踩踏者
也都触雷一般
缩回脚来
灵魂之路
没有足印
没有人迹

EARTHWORM DANCE – 凸凹

六月 24, 2015

Regenwurmtanz Ao TuTu Ao
EARTHWORM DANCE

birds dancing
parting the fog

fish dancing
parting water

people dancing
parting people

earthworms, no-one has it
harder than them

earthworms dancing
parting the soil, parting the earth

earthworms dancing
parting hell, and the souls

for this gentle dance undermining heaven and earth
earthworms have parted with all their bones

June 2015

Tu Ao
REGENWURMTANZ

vogeltanz
teilt den nebel

fischetanz
teilt das wasser

menschentanz
teilt die menschen

niemand hats schwerer
als regenwürmer

regenwurmtanz
teilt den boden, die erde

regenwurmtanz
teilt die hölle, die seelen

für diesen tanz der himmel und erde sanft untergräbt
teilen die regenwürmer auch ihre knochen auf
