“Your Chinese is probably the worst in the class.” A classmate said jokingly to my close friend in a study abroad program. Although her Chinese was not the best, it definitely wasn’t the worse. Yet, she took his teasing very personally and I am pretty sure even cried about it later!

Chinese Poem 老房子 (Lǎo fángzi)

在乡下,可以随处看到那些老房子。
它们静静地散落在大地上,
仿佛是什么人对大地的嘱托。
就那么默默地坚守着,
一座老房子和时间较着劲,
一遍遍掏空自己。
是老了,一座老房子已承受不起命运的抚摸。
风雨来临时,
总有隐约的疼痛袭来。
偶尔有几只麻雀,飞进来,又倏地飞出去,
像是老房子的心,
骤然一跳。
一阵风吹来,那些曾经的叹息,
哭泣和笑声在墙角,
落叶一样回荡着。
一座老房子前总坐着一位老人,
仿佛是另一座老房子,
空空地等待着什么……

月 (Yuè) originally means moon but stands for “month” here, since the moon goes through its phrases each month. 一月 (Yī yuè) simply means “the first month of the year”. Since the year starts in January, 一月 (Yī yuè) means January.

It’s instinct, ...
