A Chinese Poem: Mid-Autumn Festival (With Translation Below)

Posted by Maddie on November 29, 2011 at 2:35 PM

Inspired by the Chinese holiday. In Chinese, you cannot make characters "upper-case," so the personification Dickinson frequently uses, would not accurately be translated. Similarly, while I used alliteration in the Chinese version of the poem, those who cannot speak Chinese cannot catch the alliteration and homophones used here.
