*******************
Predictions of Snow Are Rarely Accurate
by Song Huiyuan

My wife said,
"Predictions of snow are rarely accurate."

Just like on the day of my scheduled return,
my daughters are all waiting.

It was agreed that it would be yesterday,
but still no sign of it today.

Even if it does show up, in just a few days
all is melted, vanished.

May as well be a no show,
my wife said.

Besides leaving the front door wet,
besides leaving every home-coming road wet,

what good is snow? 
What good is snow? And it's so cold!

*******************
Ow, Mama!
by Song Yu

Ow, Mama! I really don't like your combing my hair so much.
I can't sit still. Outside, grasses are all sprouting, Mama.
You still want to give me red hair ties and green hair ties.
While calling me a little spoiled brat,
you braided my hair like twisted dough.
My comrades in the field are shouting battle cries;
Mu Guiying is about to lead the charge.
My man Yang Zhongbao, him, him, him,
he waits for me to return like a hero missing in action.
Ow, Mama!
A peach wood comb is giving me a peach red stain. 
I am doomed to offend with my wild roaming heart.
You cannot cure
your little spoiled brat.

Tree Shadow in Cold Spring
by Wuding

Wintry days, the cold spring sends a chill to the bones.
A tree and his shadow wait for the return of spring zephyr;
the flowers of March are still remote, and his impatience reverberates
across the pond, though the cold spring is untouched.

A thousand years of waiting,
the weather has veered into anomalies.
All the while no one ever noticed that the tree's scraggly limbs 
were arching over the water as if trying to grasp the passing moments.

He is alienated from himself,
losing leaves, each with an imprint 
of the splendors of the past,
drifting from one place to another.

Day in and day out, there is still no sign of March,
the tree does all he can to freshen up his shadow in the cold spring. 
He has no idea of what melancholy is
beyond the change of season and the change of time.
