LOVING RELATIONSHIP〔愛的關聯〕: POEM TRANSLATION

This poem was written after my Laos Medical Mission.  At the end of the free medical services, the local held a celebration in appreciation of our group of Malaysians and Singaporeans, and Laos doctors and translators.

LOVING RELATIONSHIP愛的關聯〕

A mouthful of that magical rice wine:

一口神奇的米酒:

the high spirit burns, hitting the divine.

精神高度热衷,击中神圣。

Body and mind is on fire,

身軀和心靈在點燃,

masks shatter, no dire.

面具片碎,不可怕。

Original faces reveal,

最初面孔露出了,

the feel is now real.

觉现在是真实的。

Mission accomplished cheers!

使命完成的欢呼!

the elation fills the air, jeers.

满興高采烈的氣氛,嘲笑。

My old bones move with the music,

我的老骨头隨著音乐移动,

traditional dance in my old trick.

传统舞蹈在我的老把戏。

Thread of connections link hundred hearts,

接連的线程链接几百心,

joyful relationships are loving arts.

令人歡欣的關聯是愛的藝術。

NB The local rice wine (whisky) contains 50% alcohol, much cheaper than beer, and is available everywhere, even at petrol stations. We have seen many alcoholic liver and other associated diseases, plus the familial, marital and social problems.
