만향옥
Sophy Chen

어린 시절, 우리 오두막 마당 앞에
봄이 오면 엄마는 여러 가지 꽃들을 심는다
기억 속에 자리 잡은 꽃들은 모란, 월계…
그 중에 내가 가장 좋아하는 꽃은
만향옥이다

여름 밤이면 참 좋다
마당에 앉아 낭떠러지에서
새들과 벌레들의 지저귐을 듣고
달이 밤하늘에서 떠도는 것을 본다

마음의 선율이 벌레들의 화음으로
호흡이 맞추어 율동을 하고 있노라면
어디서인가 향기로운 냄새가 풍겨오다
달빛 아래에서
만향옥의 꽃망울이 터지는 소리이다

꽃이 있고
이 달 밤이 있으면
님의 불후의 시편은
언제든지
향기 속에서 만발하오니

[China] Sophy Chen
Sonnet 3 Tuberose

As I was young my mom planted some flowers
In front of our old wooden house in springs
In my memory they were peony, China rose…
But what I loved the most was the tuberose

In summer night it's a nice time to me
You could sit in yard to listen the night birds
Singing on cliffs, insects singing in bushes
And look at the moon moving in night skies

However, while your heart was beating at pace
With insects singing and in the sudden
From nowhere floating the rays of fragrance
In the moon a bunch of tuberose blossoms

As these flowers always bloom in moon nights
Your great poem may be living in its fragrance

【中国】 苏菲

十四诗 之三 晚香玉


小的时候,我家木屋门前
春天,妈妈总会种些花儿
记忆深处有牡丹,有月季……
我最喜欢的花,是晚香玉

夏日的夜晚,是最美好的
你坐在院子里,听夜鸟们
在悬崖歌唱,虫儿们低吟
看月牙儿,在夜空里流转

当你的心弦,和着虫儿们
的低吟节律地律动,突然
从哪里,飘来一缕缕芬芳
月光下,晚香玉次第绽放

这花儿总在,这月夜开放
你不朽诗篇,芬芳里滋长

    A beautiful poem, Sophy. I am an avid gardener and love flowers. I start them indoors towards the end of winter and enjoy them all summer long and they have inspired poetry. Congratulations on all your hard work and success.
    Peace
