Winter Travels

who's typing on the void
too many stories
they're twelve stones
hitting the clockface
twelve swans
flying out of winter
 
tongues in the night
describe gleams of light
blind bells
cry out for someone absent
 
entering the room
you see that jester's
entered winter
leaving behind flame

About the author:

Bei Dao (1949) is the pen name of Chinese poet Zhao Zhenkai. He was born in Beijing. He choose the pen name because he came from the north and because of his preference for solitude. Bei Dao is the most notable representative of the Misty Poets, a group of Chinese poets who reacted against the restrictions of the Cultural Revolution.
