A DREAM OF MOTHER -SON REUNION
Ⅰ.A Beautiful Night
So calm is the moon lit sky,
clear,blue and just beautiful.
The dominant full moon hangs above high,
surrounded by a bevy of shining stars.
The whole universe is restful.
Over the hills the colorful foliage shows
their vague multiple hues
in the moon light,
in the woods a few fly-like lights sparkles.
At the foot hill a tiny village comes into my sight.
Right on the edge of the village
stands an estate along with two mimosa trees,so huge.
That is my childhood home .
All of a sudden my mother appears under the elegant mimosas .
Oh!eventually I am coming home.
Mother seems to have noticed my presence;
joy and happiness shows on her countenance.
She holds my two hands and murmurs:
“My child ,I am so glad you’re home.
This is your home ,your sweet home.”
Since you left home
I’ve lived alone all the time;
with a hope that you’ll soon come home.
So many years have gone by;
my hope to see you again has never been to die.
Exhilaration is my feeling
for your coming home.
Stay with your mom for some time,even a short time.
Tell me what and how you’ve lived your life.
Good Lord!Thank heaven both of us are still alive.
Ⅳ.Son’s Mixed Emotions
Oh! Mother, I can’t say in words.
How lucky and happy I am !
After so many years I can see you again at our home.
I want to be with you for a long long time
And won’t leave you alone at home.
All at once, a sound so loud
makes me surprised .
It is the alarm clock
clangs so aloud .
My bitter sweet dream is lost in the bafflement cloud .
