1. Une nuit blanche

Et toute la ville dance ce soir

En couleur et bruit

 

2. I start with English

Je continue en français

中文来结束

 

3.   There are ten thousand

Things I would like to say, but

Let’s just leave it there

 

4.  A few simple folds

And life unfurls and runs wild

On paper and pages

 

5.   The last blooming bud

Stands above the rotting leaves

And stays all alone

 

6.    And now, ladies, gents,

For my next trick, I will make

All of this HUMID!

 

7.  谁知他人名

我想都不能回忆

他人多可怜

 

8.  When I am alone

I pretend to be the one

That all others see

 

9.  A teaspoon of luck,

A dash of sugar and a

Pinch of joy gives Life

 

10.  Well now, Toronto.

You thoroughly upset me.

You have little snow.
