FIREFLY (REVISION AND CHINESE TRANSLATION)

In the shadow

A lone firefly aglow

Transmits coded light

Console a man and his plight.

It’s small

The light is not tall.

In darkness:

It beams with brightness

Shining:

In alignment with the divine.

A speck of spark:

Revealing sight for the dark.

Translation by Ng (Liu) May Ling, Toronto, Canada.

《 Firefly 》

螢火蟲

In the shadow,
在陰影下,
A lone firefly aglow,
孤独發光的螢火蟲,
Transmit coded light,
傳發編碼的光,
Console a man and his plight.
慰撫一個人和其困境.
It’s small,
牠是小的
The light is not tall.
光亮不高.
In darkness;
在黑暗中
It beams with brightness,
牠的閃光是明亮,
Shining;
發光;
In alignment with the divine.
在神聖的配合.
A speck of spark;
一粒微塵的火花;
Revealing sight for the dark.
顯出黑暗的視覺.
