Gold Civilization In Prehistory

written by: Hongri Yuan

translated by: Yuanbing Zhang

 

Fifteen million years ago,
there was a civilization of gold on the earth.
The sun wrote the words of gold,
the moon wrote the words of silver;
all things on earth had their own language.
Where do the gods live now?
They have never disappeared,
they house still on earth,
you just aren't able to see them.

史前之黄金文明

written by: Hongri Yuan

 

一千五百万年前
大地上曾有过黄金的文明
太阳写下黄金的词语
月亮写下白银的词语
万物皆有自己的语言
那些神人们现在何方
他们不曾消失
他们仍然在大地之上
只是无法看见
