It Turns Out That The Moon Is Hidden By The Cold Cliff
 
Last night , it was the 15th day of the first month of lunar year, I translated poems overtime at night
In the mountain village the moon is bright and distant
The chill invaded my bone marrow at midnight, so I did not appreciate it
Tonight it is the 16th day of the first month of lunar year and the moon should be round the most
But I suddenly found out that the moon didn’t come out
Looking over the roof and the four sides of the canyon
There is no shadow of the moon, where is the moon
Is the moon of the 16th day of the first month of lunar year covered by dark clouds
The moment when I turned around, I suddenly found in the east of canyon
There was a shallow halo on the black cliff of it
The halo is getting stronger and stronger, till
On the cliff the shadow of the trees can be seen sparsely, slowly
The moon rose a dim light shadow from the shadows of the trees, the light shadow
Is getting stronger and stronger, bigger and bigger, and clearer and clearer
Until its whole body is appearing in the dancing tree shadows
If you look at it from another angle, the moon oh
It hangs beautifully on the treetop of hillside
To see its cold and cheerless looking, I suddenly felt deep cold between the canyon …
It turns out that the moon is hidden by the cold cliff

《原来呀,月亮就藏在冷冷的山崖边》
——苏菲
 
昨夜是正月十五,夜里加班翻译
山乡的月亮明亮,旷远
午夜寒意侵入骨髓,没好好欣赏
今夜正月十六,月亮应该最圆了
却突然发现月亮竟然没有出来
望了望屋顶,峡谷的四面山崖
都不见月亮的影儿,月亮哪里去了
难道十六的月亮还被乌云遮住了
转身的瞬间,突然发现谷间东边
黑黢黢的山崖上泛起浅浅的光晕
光晕越来越强,直到
山崖上树影稀疏可见,慢慢的
月儿从树影里泛起朦胧的光影,光影
越来越强,越来越大,越来越清晰
直到整个身子掩映在婆娑的树影里
如果你换个角度欣赏,月亮呀
它已唯美地挂在山坳树梢儿上了
那冷清,顿觉旷谷间寒意深浓……
原来呀,月亮就藏在冷冷的山崖边
