POEM OF THE DAY: Chance

by Xu Zhimo (1896 – 1931).

 

Chance

 

I am a cloud in the sky,                                                   

A chance shadow on the wave of your heart.

Don’t be surprised,

Or too elated;

In an instant I shall vanish without trace.                    5

 

We meet on the sea of dark night,

You on your way, I on mine.

Remember if you will,

Or, better still, forget

The light exchanged in this encounter.                     10
