The Olive Tree

by: San Mao
________________

Donít ask where Iím from, because my hometown is far away from here.
Why have I reached this place?
Flowing, flowing away from my home.
Like a little bird in the sky, a little stream
among mountains, and an endless prairie.
I have been flown, flown away from my country.
I always see an olive tree in my dream, but why does it only exist in my
dream?
Please donít ask about my hometown, because I miss it a lot.
Why have I been flown to this place, far from my home?
Olive tree in my dream, please tell me the reason.
