White Hair

Combed hair falls snow white   

frosted-fuzz circles my sideburns   

topped with a stale old odor:   

how my looks have changed.   

Hair refusing to grow dark   

at least it continues to grow.   

I despise looking into a sharp mirror  

and seeing a head half-black half-white.  

 

白髮

雪髮隨梳落。  

霜毛繞鬢垂。  

加添老氣味。  

改變舊容儀。  

不肯長如漆。  

無過總作絲。  

最憎明鏡里。  

黑白半頭時。
