木心

记得早先少年时
Remember the old days
大家诚诚恳恳
When everyone was sincere
说一句 是一句
One's word is one's bond
清早上火车站
The dawn of the train station
长街黑暗无行人
The dark street with no sign of pedestrian
卖豆浆的小店冒着热气
And the steam from the soy-milk stall
从前的日色变得慢
The nighfalls used to come late in the past
车,马,邮件都慢
Everything was slow, the bike, the horse, and the post
一生只够爱一个人
A lifetime was all but enough to be in love with one
从前的锁也好看
The old-school lock was beautiful
钥匙精美有样子
And the key exquisite looking
你锁了 人家就懂了
Once locked, the others understood

摘自《云雀叫了一整天》
