Jane Hirshfield (1953–) là nhà thơ và dịch giả người Mỹ.

Người đàn bà có râu

Mỗi lần để ý,
cô lại định
nhổ ba sợi râu đen,
nhưng ngày thì ngắn;
ngón tay cô sờ lên cằm
rồi quên.
Cứ thế sự mệt mỏi mọc cong thành minh triết.

Jane Hirshfield, “The Bearded Woman,” The Lives of the Heart (HarperCollins, 1997). This poem was first published in The New Yorker (July 29, 1996 Issue).
