Crickets and Earthworms
Zhang Shuming
Crickets are famous
Because of its mellow singing voice
Tap dancing with great grace

The earthworm is silent and quiet
Because the earthworm is out of sight
In the sight of people

So the cricket's reputation grows
Admirable and even awe-inspiring

And the earthworm continues his silent work
Rain or shine, no matter how bad or bad

   蟋蟀与蚯蚓
      张淑明

蟋蟀声名远播
皆因它歌喉圆润
踢踏舞跳得优雅异常

蚯蚓默默无闻悄没声息
因为蚯蚓的身影不在
人们的视线里出没

于是蟋蟀的盛名愈来愈
令人钦佩甚至使人敬畏

而蚯蚓也继续他默默无闻的工作
不论风霜雨雪不管褒贬毁誉
