Poem by Germain DROOGENBROODT

 

***
 
別追著夜裡的星光跑
要引導那
囂張的塵俗的黑暗面向陽
 
不要吝啬施捨品
要與夜的流浪者分享
以食物與酒香
 
向破曉時分拋擲玫瑰吧
 
 
 
***
 
DO NOT follow the stars of the night
but upstream the darkness
which is earthly and palpable
 
don’t save the alms
share bread and wine
with the nomads of the night
 
throw roses in the break of day.
