Full moon shaped Blue and white porcelain bottle

Full moon shaped Blue and white porcelain bottle

(Poem writen By Jianghua Fan, Translated by Alisha Cheng)

Who, held a full moon
Along with my horse head string instrument, together
disappeared in a folk song that was going farther and farther

Whose thin and long lash
whipped to hurt the snow mountain, meanwhile, with
tears I grazed as I watched my herd, together
whipped to cut off it in the deep trails of the wagon

The appointment is like a pot is full of strong wine, and is still hanging
in the moonlight after you left, whether the lotus flower
fastened to the embrace in the grassland, or the promises before the Aoboo*

When spring lays back from the far, your
Flexible little waist, bulging arms
Whether or not, let my deficient overlook
Once again filled with the sounds of horseshoe, the surging water

*Aoboo: means the heap of stones, It is Mongolia people’s worship building which is built by stones. In the grasslands of Mongolia, there have no hills, rivers, trees, landmark in many places. There is grassland everywhere; therefore, the Aoboo is often used as a road sign.
