•  Text of the poem


    在日落时工作

        齐红玫

窗内荧光窗外霞
不喜荧光只爱霞
安得长绳系落日
长留彩色满天涯

In pinyin:

    Zài rì luò shí gōng zuò

Chuāng nèi yíng guāng, chuāng wài xiá.
Bù xĭ yíng guāng, zhĭ ài xiá.
Ān dé cháng shéng jì luò rì
Cháng liú căi sè măn tiān yá?

My translation:

    Working at sunset

Inside my window a glimmering screen, outside a rosy glow.
I don't care at all for the screen, I only love the glow.
Where can I find a long rope to tie down the sun,
Filling creation forever with those colors?
