We brought the light-box
And put it on the roof of a school.
Po-I fell! It hurt!
I watched a proof photo in Moscow by email and chose a composition.
I-Ching switched on the light.
And miracle happened to a boy from Xsiaolin village:
The moon came down to him from Heaven!
I embrace the moon on a big rock
The rock was cast out from the heaven
And thrown into the valley by typhoon
My embrace is strong and powerful
But still unable to keep the fog in my hands
as life passed away.
I wandered on the land of waste things
Looking for a lost love
Suddenly I saw the light
Someone threw the moon as today's
unnecessary poetic symbol
I picked it up and put in my heart
Magic silver light beamed from
every pore of my skin
Once more once more
I'm the moon for you

On the shore of this island
The army left an abandoned bunker
It became a shelter for the moon during the day
And a stairway in the night.
Her ray is reflected
by the empty cooper shell

The mountains parted and the moon
came out of the clouds.
Now my path is clear and straight.
But my life may not be long enough
To get the lighthouse
Where three rivers join together
The lake filled with peace
And me too. I caught a fish but catch the moon.
Would stay here forever,
But there will come a new scurry day
And the moon run away!
