Dog-Walking in the Snow

by Lynette Rose Derbyshire

 

•  Background

A poem by Mrs. Derbyshire.

At the poet's request I have used the modern simplified characters (简体字) for her poems, instead of the traditional ones (繁體字) used elsewhere in these readings.

    雪天遛犬

        齐红玫

雪天遛犬雪花迎
万物银装如仙境
前望雪地白如纸
回首足印并排行

My translation:

    Dog-Walking in the Snow

Dog and I meet flakes all crystalline —
A fairy landscape clothed in argentine.
In front the unmarked snow, a sheet of white;
Behind, two lines of footsteps, his and mine.
