Watching Snow in the Morning of February 1st


Yu Xiaozhong
Translated from Chinese by Ou Shilin

Never ask the silent people
the cause of their silence.

An early riser sees the quiet snow
falling since last night, without a sound.

The blind live in their own world.
We are in the dark and them in the light.

I regret having taken a photo
with a blind girl; her obedience was like snow
falling on deep ocean. I should have done
no more than bowing to her.

About the author:

Yu Xiaozhong is from Hubei province. His works appear in many major Chinese literature magazines and anthologies.
