By Chinese Poet Hongri YuanTranslated by Yuanbing ZhangHeaven's Song
In heaven where there has no night.
ln heaven where there has no the sun or the moon.
In heaven where everyone is the stars.
In heaven where the time is the light of the soul.
In heaven where the space is the smile of the soul.
In heaven where I have another name–
I am one of the gods, have no idea
about the sorrows and joys of the word.
Never-withering Flowers from Paradise
I pick the gem flowers from the heavens,
and write a music of memory for you.
Let you suddenly wake up and see the long-lost hometown again
let you ride the melody of light
to fly into the ninety-nine skies.
Where the palaces and towers are yours,
where the gardens are as huge as the universe
and the time will never elapse,
blooming like the never-withering flowers from paradise.
Strings of The Light of Dawn
When I plucked strings of the light of dawn
A golden lightning burned a huge city
The undulating hills in distance twinkled the ruby smile
Vaguely there came acoustic resonance of the bell
from the centervault of heaven
Who have seen that the palace was towering outside the sky
The gods smiled with stately grace and raised their glass
Female celestials shed datura flowers flying all over the sky.
And a large ship approached from another galaxy
They came from a huge platinum city
Their ships were much faster than the speed of light
Ever visited the earth billions of years ago
They brought new technology
To make the steel have a wonderful spiritualism
Their eyes can perceive the heaven and the world
Heart is as bright as the sun
And body is as transparent as diamond
