爸爸和女儿的两首诗

(2019-07-06 11:48:22) 下一个

和闺女一起写了两首诗。第一首,爹根据闺女(11岁)的发言记录,站在闺女的角度上写的。第二首,是闺女看了爹写的后,有点不满,自己写了另一首。这两首诗所描述的,是不是有点华人家庭共性呢?

 

(1: by 爹)

 

Daddy told me,

He came to America after a long journey.

He went to a top university,

And got his Ph.D.

He learned many life stories,

To share with me.

He also earned lots of wisdom,

Eager to teach me.

 

My dear daddy,

I wanna put my feet my own way.

I love the arts, drama, and debate,

Not math, physics, and chemistry.

I also have my dreams,

To be an artistic lawyer,

Not a weirdo giggling in a lab every day.

 

My dear daddy,

I wanna put my feet my own way.

I understand how much you love me,

But I don't want you to protect me to thirty.

Thank you for teaching me computer,

But please leave me more time to play.

I won't be your copy.

I will choose what to be.

 

My dear daddy,

Please put your trust in me.

I am not a stubborn kid,

But I am gonna explore the world by myself,

And make mistakes which could be necessary.

I work hard like you did,

But I won't dive into science books night and day.

I will be an eagle of social justice,

Flying in the sky and soaring over the sea.

 

My dear daddy,

I love you, just like you love me.  (really?)

My dear daddy,

I love you, as much as you love me.  (are you kidding me?)

 

 

(2: by 闺女)

 

My dad told me,

He came to America after pooping in pumpkins.

He went to a top university,

And ate a lot of food.

He learned many life stories,

To share with me.

He also did a lot of weird things,

Eager to tell me.

 

My weird father,

I want to get a break from math books.

I love drawing, sewing and my dog,

Not algebraic expressions.

I also have a cute dog,

To be a crazy animal lady,

Not a weirdo giggling staring in a book.

 

My crazy parent,

I want to get a billion dogs.

I understand how much you love me,

But I don't want you to be an over protective human.

No thanks I don’t want to be another nerdy duck,

But please get me a lock on my door.

I won’t eat a squirrel,

But I’ll be smart enough to cook my own food.

 

My fellow human,

Please don’t make me sing this.

I am not a good singer,

But I am going to be in drama club,

And make mistakes which could be necessary.

I work hard unlike my dog,

But I won't eat steak night and day.

I will be a purple squirrel,

Flying in the sky and eating non-steak items.

 

My dear father,

I want a pet squirrel

My dear father,

I love candy, as much as you love me.
