Walking upon the earth – Poem by Chi Chien, China- Taiwan (1913) / Translation: Germain Droogenbroodt

Poem by Chi Chien, China- Taiwan (1913)
 
 
Walking upon the earth
 
Walking upon the earth
All alone by myself,
I swing up my black walking cane
And make a heavy thrust
At the hard cold crust of the earth,
So the people on the other side
May hear a faint knock
And feel my existence.
