英文诗:祝你生日快乐
文/新民
2003年09月11日,星期四

Today
Let's celebrate
In joyful bliss
For your stamping
With tiny footprints
On life's lease 

For tomorrow
We shall dial again
Deep into our conscience
8:46 am
Marks the beginning
Of deafening silence 

You are ahead
By just one day
Nine years ago
But one day
Separates the worlds
Joy and sorrow

You are fortunate (or really so?)
Free to say cheese
And can have a mouthful too
Unfairness to you
Takes on a new meaning
No peanuts and fish, for good

Surmise not for a moment
Plenty is children's lot
Around the globe
Thin and dry walking sticks
Cast in sultry
Sahara desert
Ghastly shadows

You have a foretaste of wealth
By owning tanks and planes
All made of plastic lego
Online basketball befits your stature
Virtual pets cry thirst and hunger
Pool table connects vying souls

Inventor's dream of yours
Can be illusive to many
Who struggle to gingerly tiptoe
Maimed Afghan lads still groan
Gaza
Strip continues to moan
Anguish in Euphrates foam

I love your inquisitiveness
You pry before many a bedtime prayer
For my childhood stories untold
I love your gentleness
Bequeathed unlikely by genes alone
But the spirit within upholds

I love your frankness
You taught me
Less serious may I be so
But you appeared to be serious
When you asked me if top 1%
Suffice for Harvard to go

I love to hate your babyish utterance
Your tentative pleas to sleep by me
On weekend nights if stars glow
I love to hate your selective laidback attitude
You try hard to bat the ball beyond reach
Catch fast only to throw it slow

Just like your sisters sang this morning
Happy birthday to you
You are one hundred and two
You smell like a monkey
And you look like one too
Happy birthday to you
