Poetry﹕The Summer Day

【明報專訊】The cool weather in the last few days made me think of the summer that is gone. In Hong Kong, summer, with its unbearable heat and scorching (灼熱的) sun, is often looked upon with dread (懼怕、擔心), but Mary Oliver, who lives in Massachusetts, the US, has her own observations of summer. In The Summer Day, she is led by what she sees to deep contemplation (沉思、冥想).
