I come to the town, the silence cover the alleysVisitors come to town / the lane gate in quietness客來門下，銅環的輕叩如鐘I come to the door, the knocking sounds like a resounding bellVisitors come on in the tap of the copper door-knocker is a bell遠天飄飛的雲絮The cloud like cotton full of the skyFluffy clouds float through distant skies與一階落花..The cloud like cotton full of the skyWith the dispersed leavesWith a step of fallen flowers…
第二組2)〈小時候的願望〉My dream when I was a child.侯德建詞曲“Childhood Wishes”小時候我盼望著，傍晚時候刮著風；拉緊風箏，隨它飄上天。I was looking forward to the wind breeze as night falls when I was achild.Tie the kite tight and let the kite fly up to the sky wherever.*When I was a child I’d hope, in the evening the wind would blow;holding onto a kite, and with it take flight into the sky小時候我盼望著，暑假時候河水涼；盡情玩水，還有魚和蝦。I was looking forward to the river cool in the summer time when I was achild.Spend time at the seaside where the fish and shrimp do live.When I was a child I’d hope, the cool river waters during summerholiday;*Playing in the water as much as I’d like, with the fish and shrimp.長大時，溜走歡笑、溜走童年、我變了，星夜在昏睡中去了。Laughter fled. Childhood fled. The stars fell asleep.I am not the person who I used to be after growing up.*Growing up, slipping away is the laughter, slipping away is thechildhood, and I changed, the stars in the night sky slipped away in myslumber.
