The new policy of hainan free trade zone brought my meomory back to a bilingual poem I composed a few years ago:

 A gem rediscovered《珍宝重现》

  Far back into ancient mystery,  追溯到神秘的远古
  a people lived humbly,  一群人民简朴地生活
  in the shadows of the green.  在郁郁的绿荫下
  No desire for conquests  绝无征服的欲望
  or luxury belongings, 和奢侈品的渴求
  friendly as ever,  一如既往友好地
  they treated outasts 对待被放逐的
  exiled from power struggles  权斗失势者
  or honest deeds  和正直的官员
  like a member of their family. 如同他们的家人

  The zodiac turns. 黄道轮转
  on this planet, 在这个星球上,
  human thrives beyond oceans, 人类在大洋彼岸兴旺
  its fall-out sends waves 余波兴起浪
  and touch shores of 拍打到这小岛
  this forgotten isle. 四周的海岸

  wake up, my people! 醒来吧,我的人民!
  time has changed, 时代已改变
  so must our lives .我们的生活也当改变
  preserving our humble nature, 保留我们朴素的心地
  we need to learn 我们需要学习
  the arts of the worldly,世俗的机巧
  so as to reveal ourselves 以便把我们展现
  to this world, 给这个世界
  a gem rediscovered. 一个重现的珍宝

    We may sometimes live in low mood, but never lose minds!  If so, you are sleeping and that is good way of resting!
