Touching Tongues

—after Marcella Spann

Su-Lung Wang
in A Daughter of Confucius
tells us when she began
learning English
she read that
"The cat can see the rat."

Thinking back on her
first day
in Chinese family school, where
she learned to say
"the nature of man is originally good,"
she concluded

"education in English
seemed less philosophical."
