Xiangchou (Nostalgia) by Yu Guang Zhong, 1971.

I was a child,
Nostalgia seemed a small stamp:
I was here…
My mother was there.

When I grew up
Nostalgia became a ticket:
I was here…
My bride was there.

Years later,
Nostalgia was a little tomb:
I was outside…
My mother was inside.

And now,
My nostalgia is a shallow strait:
I am at here…
The mainland is there.

小时候

乡愁是一枚小小的邮票

我在这头

母亲在那头

 

长大后

乡愁是一张窄窄的船票

我在这头

新娘在那头

 

后来啊

乡愁是一方矮矮的坟墓

我在外头

母亲在里头

.

而现在

乡愁是一湾浅浅的海峡

我在这头

大陆在那头
