Shabdaguchha Title: Issue 70


    Zhang Hu

    LISTENING TO A WOMAN PLUCKING THE ZHENG



    A woman is plucking the zheng
    with her red finger nails
    as smooth as bamboo shoots

    The instrument sounds
    as if a wild goose is flying
    among the green strings

    This song is about the men
    who suffered painfully
    while laboring
    on the Great Wall

    They are tolerating misery
    like a river crying
    under bitter clouds
    in the whistling wind

    Translated by Rukui Chen and John Digby



    Note: Zhang Hu was a poet from Tang Dynasty (690-705), which was mainly an Imperial Dynasty of China.
