5. On Mill Road

 

Apples are ripening

on their trees. Sam walks

up Mill Road to do

 

his shopping at the

Co-op and post three

letters. Then calls in

 

at greengrocers

and buys a small bundle

of fresh parsley. Sees

 

a neighbour and they

chat a bit. Summer air tastes

delicious. Walking is

 

 

good for breathing.

He enjoys it. Eyes keep on

being amazed at things

 

they see and hear. Heart

for now goes on beating

alert and strong.

Translation:

 

5. 米尔路上

 

苹果正在树上

熟透。山姆沿着

米尔路走

 

去到合作社

购物也寄三封

信。又顺便

 

去果蔬店

买上一小把新鲜

西芹。看见

 

邻居他们便聊上

几句。夏日的气息

品来怡人。走路

 

 

对呼吸有好处。

他享受走路。眼睛一直

惊喜于那些他们

 

看见和听到的东西。心

在此刻一直警觉

又有力地跳荡着。
