from Spring Songs (1)

1.

Spring storms roam across the valley.
On the maple, leaves appear like gypsy tents.

Wind off the mountainside ruffles the green edges:
inside one of the leaves sits a woman at a fortune telling table

laying the lone card of summer face-down.

    Thanks! Hope you like it. Here it is:

    春歌之一

    春至
    蔓延谷中楓林
    新葉似部落的帳篷

    山邊
    春風撫抱雛綠
    帳篷裏的萛命婆婆

    反過夏令的帖子

    I have sent you an updated translation and an audio file of my reading (in Chinese):

    春歌之一

    春季蔓延滿谷楓樹
    新葉似部落的帳篷

    山邊春風撫抱雛綠
    帳篷裏的萛命婆婆

    將夏令的帖子反過
