08.〈問米〉Rice

呢隻係籼米 

米身好鬼窄而修長

暹羅 安南 遠到天竺

都有出產

播與種按季節 價格每季變 

晚早中簡單分三造

 

呢隻係粳米 

佢與籼米確係不同

米身好圓 也可稱作蓬萊米

咁呢隻又係乜鬼

呢啲叫做糯米

 

丟 食我就識

 

咁先至去定賣幾貴

 

淡淡像茉莉花飄芳

細嚼有甘香

靈魂如像看得見 

農家初春插秧

落日下望秋色

錦繡金衣早換上

過路有小蜻蜓 

清風作滋養

 

細佬想拜你為師

知地入平米

夠喇咪說笑 

哎吔 有你我夠照 

我心肝如皮球亂跳

米呢科好彩多得你教路 

小姐講嘅太重要

 

十月廿二一聲不吭

已到了海港

回來時或已冬至 

年關等燒炮仗

 

臘月廿二身影不見 

怎麼心在癢

說定了的歸期 他可會趕上

 

離家計起一百日 

人等了幾趟

百日米 去又往 

問船航哪方

如牽掛可剪斷腸 

就等傳來米香 

記住了 

尾指勾過是我倆

 

六月道別水哥出海

送米到家鄉

船又往 已不知去向

This is Indica rice,

it has long grain

Produced in Siam,

Annam and Sindhu

Planting depends on seasons,

its price fluctuates

Each season divided

into three crops

 

This is Japonica rice,

different from Indica

It’s rounded, also known as

Penglai rice

 

What about this?

Glutinous rice

 

Damn, I only know to eat

 

Then you can determine

the selling price

 

Fragrant like jasmine

and subtly sweet

Picture farmers planting

seedlings in early spring

In the autumn sunset,

admire the field aglow

Dragonflies drift by,

carried by a light breeze

 

Will you teach me

how to buy rice?

Stop joking

With you, I’m secure

My heart beats like mad

Thank you for your

wise words on rice

 

Quietly, he reached the

harbour in autumn

When he returns

it’ll be Winter Solstice

 

I await to see him

before lunar new year

He promised to return

by then, will he make it?

 

He’s been gone 100 days,

I’ve waited quite a few turns

Rice takes 100 days to grow.

Where is his boat now?

How I miss the aroma

of fragrant rice

Remember our pledge

 

We bade farewell in summer

when he delivered rice

Where is his boat now?
