Promise by Zhou Can ~ 周粲 《承诺》 with English Translations

作品原文

周粲 《承诺》

早就答应那个人
在前世
说要把今生的领悟
都写下来
在咒语中焚烧
使信息像一颗流星
曳尾而逝

现在自己却又惦记着
要把对那人的承诺
变成嘱咐
交给另一个即将远行
而不归的众生

 

 

作品译文

 

 

Promise
Zhou Can

In my last life
I had promised that man
I will write down all my apperception
Of his life
Cremate them with a spell
And make the message disappear
Like a shooting star

And now I am thinking about
Entrusting my promise
To another man
Who will go to a remote place
Never to return
