Fading Beauty

Zhuang Ling
Translated from Chinese by Ou Shilin

The evening settles on a ripe apple,
which also has its secret panic;
the boy playing water drifts away in the river;
stars blink.
Leaves fall before we come to speak about love;
It's too late for a hug as trains depart.
She combs her temples, watching a peach blossom,
as beauty is fadingÖ
