“Night Affair”, poem by 蔡澤民 Tzemin Ition Tsai, Taiwan

Night-Affair 2

夜之喚

總是來得濛濛 春之

總是來得遲遲 夏之

總是來得姍姍 秋之

總是來得早早 冬之

這夜呀

可不讓牆頭上的貓

空空地等

Night affair

Always comes misty, Is not that spring?

Always goes slowly, Is not that summer?

Always brings a touch of cool, Is not that autumn?

Always falling so early, Is not that winter?

And that night

Never lets the cats on the wall

wait in vain

Un affare notturno

Sempre viene nella nebbia, non è la primavera?

Sempre se ne va lentamente, non è l’ estate?

Sempre porta un tocco di fresco, non è l’autunno?

Sempre giunge così presto, non è l’inverno?

E la notte

Mai lascia i gatti sul muro

Ad aspettare in vano

(Translated by Lidia Chiarelli)
