Poetry

At Dusk: Afterglow

By Zhang Lian
Translated from Chinese by Berlin Fang

You must know
At Peg Number 39
You could see an afterglow
A glory that you should not miss
Inevitably
You will walk into its grandeur
Along the road
That passes your village
You walk out of the village
And that is dusk

At Peg Number 39
Beside salty pond
Violet flowers join
To form
The dusk

Violet flowers join
To form
