at fifteen i joined the army
tr. zhao yanchun
at fifteen i joined the army;
now i come back at eighty.
i meet a neighbor on the way:
“who does in my family stay?”
“look over there, that is your home.”
amid the pines lies tomb by tomb!
hares run thru dog holes in and out;
pheasants fly round the beams worn-out.
in the yard wild grain grows mellow;
by the well mallow turns yellow.
with wild grain a meal i prepare;
on mallow porridge i will fare.
the meal and porridge are soon done;
to share my dinner there comes none.
out of the gate east i behold,
my gown is wet with my tears old.
