This is one of the poems I’m translating for the bilingual poetry event United Verses. The event has readings of Chinese and English poetry, with translations into both languages.
This is my translation of the poem 等待 (‘Waiting’) by the poet ‘Yuan Z’. As the language of the original poem seems quite abrupt and simple, I decided to leave out any punctuation or capitalisation in the English translation, rather than trying to create sentence and phrase boundaries that the poet might not have intended.
Comments on the translation are welcome, as always.
