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……
刺勒川,选自《2008中国诗歌精选》,2009

One of his horses accidentally strayed into the lands of the Xiongnu, so everyone “安慰 ...
