Best Poem of BEI Ling

For Dreams to Linger and for Time

For dreams to linger and for time
Water warms water
Iron left to grow cold
Wishes are pressed into a paper's surface

Break away, pass through entire rooms
Rattle sounds out of piano strings
Even wake stones flat on the ground
Grim line of silent mouth

For dreams to linger and for time

Translated by Denis Mair
