A Mysterious Giant

Five Poems by Hongri Yuan

Words by Hongri Yuan, translated by Yuanbing Zhang

A Mysterious Giant

There is another sun in the body of earth,
it is the light of lights, cool flames.
Where the palaces and pavilions are golden and transparent,
houses a mysterious giant.

Last night I heard a call in my dreams
and came to his vast hall.
His smile made you to forget yourself,
reminded me of a ancient poetry—— “the rising sun has just risen”.

神秘的巨人

大地的体内有另一轮太阳
它是光之光 清凉之火焰
那儿的宫殿楼台金色透明
住着一位神秘的巨人

昨夜我梦中听到召唤
来到了他那巨大的殿堂
他的笑容让你忘了自己
令我想起古人之诗 旭日始旦

Gold Civilization in Prehistoric

Fifteen million years ago,
there was a civilization of gold on the earth.
The sun wrote the words of gold,
the moon wrote the words of silver;
all things on earth had its own language.
Where do the gods live in now?
They have never disappeared,
they house still on the earth,
just you aren’t able to see them.

史前之黄金文明

一千五百万年前
大地上曾有过黄金的文明
太阳写下黄金的词语
月亮写下白银的词语
万物皆有自己的语言
那些神人们现在何方
他们不曾消失
他们仍然在大地之上
只是无法看见

Giant’s Homes

The fleets of stars were speeding towards me,
They came fromthe distant galaxies.
In prehistoric times, they were the ancient gods,
their ancient kingdoms existed in the depths of the earth.
Oh, they gave me the rolls of gold books,
let me to seek the swords of gods.
The ancient earth will be golden and transparent,
hold up the newborn homes of giants.

巨人的家园

星辰的舰队向我驶来
他们来自遥远的星系
在史前 他们是古老的诸神
在大地的深处 有他们古老的王国
哦 他们赠我一卷卷金书
让我去寻找那一把把神剑
这古老的大地将金色透明
托起新的巨人的家园

I Saw a Golden City

I saw a golden city
made itself invisible in the earth.
Those ancients were still alive.
I often visit them in my dream.

Their eyes were very bright.
as if they did not know the passage of time.
I saw myself in ancient times,
he told me that the world just was a phantom.

He gave me an ancient golden sword,
let me to go and kill the greedy Python.
These demons ruled the world.
let the mankind forget the ancient ancestors.

我看见一座金城

我看见一座金城
隐形在大地之中
那些古人还活着
我常在梦中去做客

他们的眼睛格外璀璨
仿佛不知时光的流逝
我见到了古代的自己
他告诉我人间只是幻影

他赠我一把太古的金剑
让我去击杀贪婪的蟒蛇
这些妖魔统治了人间
让人类忘记了古老的祖先

He is My Immortal Soul

The eyes of years are the maze of stars.
In a gigantic palace,
I have seen the God of Gods.
He is smiling at me in heavens.
I’m thousand years in the world, which is just his moment.
He is my immortal soul,
and the universe——transparent crystal ball, in the palm of his hand.

他是我的不朽的灵魂

岁月的眼睛 是星辰的迷宫
在一座巨大的殿堂
我见到了 那诸神之神的上帝
他在天庭之上向我微笑
我在人间的千年 只是他的瞬间
他是我的不朽的灵魂
而宇宙 透明的水晶之球 在他的手掌之上
