4. Tidying up, clearing out

 

Now its good

to clear the house of

everything not

 

needed, especially

pots, pans, pictures,

baskets, ornaments,

 

books that wont

be looked at again, gone

hopes, obsolete dreams.

 

Some things will go to

children or grandchildren,

some to charity.

 

From now on self

will be surrounded

by a very few

 

loved and familiar

objects and still fewer

impossible desires.

Translation:

 

4. 整理,清除 

 

现在最好

清理房屋所有

不需要的

 

东西,特别是

罐子、锅子、图片,

篮子,装饰品,

 

那些不会

再看的书,失去的

希望,废弃的梦想。

 

一些东西会留给

孩子或者孙子们,

一些送给慈善。

 

从现在起自我

将会被环绕在

极少的

 

喜爱和熟悉的

物品和更少不可能的

愿望之中。
