    Many a Great Fall

    When I first came across
    Humpty Dumpty,
    the one who sat on the wall
    and had a great fall,
    I was twenty,
    and couldn't but fancy
    what moral
    in it there was.
    Now,
    all the king's horses
    and all the king's men
    can't put me together again
    since I've had myself
    many a great fall
    along this journey.
    Life is so cruel
    that I can't help being regretful
    for having been a fool.
    On second thought,
    if there were
    no stormy weather,
    how could you and I gather
    many a windfall?

    I'm a Stream

    Supposing
    you're the water flowing
    down a hill,
    I'm a mountain stream
    that carries you,
    winding through the forest,
    past the mill.
    Without you,
    a stream would be nothing
    but empty
    Without me,
    the water would stand still,
    becoming a dead sea.

    Humbly Love You

    Humbly love you,
    and that's why
    I'm writing this poem for you.
    I swear to the blue sky
    I'm no longer
    the notorious guy
    that I used be,
    but could you believe me?
    Honestly,
    I've penned hundreds for you,
    but didn't send you.
    You're not to read this either
    because I'll forever
    keep it a secret from you,
    because I truly love you.

    I Wrote a Poem for You

    I wrote a poem
    for you
    but didn't send it through,
    still kept in a bottle
    beside a bunch of honeysuckle.
    Although you're half a world away,
    there's always a way
    for you
    to read my mind
    if we're two of the same kind
    just as a humming bird
    is able to perceive the fragrant word
    of golden honeysuckle
    from a thousand miles away.

    In the Snowy Season

    If you grace my humble place
    in the snowy season,
    I'll efface the bleak wind and rain
    from the horizon
    for you,
    leaving only snowflakes,
    falling like colorful petals from heaven
    on sunny lakes.
    To do the trick,
    I don't have to perform magic,
    for you
    are sure to bring along with you
    a light red carnation,
    inclusive of my inspiration.

    A Blissful Day

    It's drizzling and colder today
    than yesterday,
    but it's still a blissful day
    like everyday for me.
    It's not because
    I can taste your strawberry,
    or I'll win the lottery,
    but because
    I don't mind
    whether it's rain or shine
    so long as
    I can maintain a peaceful mind.

    The Same Rain

    You and I used to enjoy taking
    a walk in the afternoon
    while it was raining
    in June.
    It's still the same rain,
    but I'll groan in pain
    if you're leaving
    in the winter rain.
    It's still the same you
    that I knew,
    but why
    are rains in my eye
    when I see you waning
    under the January blue sky?

    I'm Perfectly All Right

    I'm perfectly all right now
    if you could only
    erase those brooding clouds
    from my window pane.
    I couldn't feel better now
    if you could only
    efface those footprints
    you left on my quiet lane.
    Don't you worry about me now
    if you could only
    find me a needle
    to stitch up
    those broken pieces of pain.

    For a Butterfly

    It's a long road
    where there's no turning
    on the horizon.
    The instant it stops raining,
    I'm sure
    you'll be beaming.
    It's an eternal winter
    when there's no hope for spring
    but gloomy weather.
    Once the sun starts shining,
    I bet,
    you'll be flying.

    To Be Immortal

    Supposing
    to be immortal
    is as good as
    to be a withered willow
    or a faded rose petal,
    supposing
    it's frightful
    to look forward to tomorrow,
    and supposing
    life is not beautiful
    but sorrow,
    then I'd choose
    to be a morning glory,
    smiling gorgeously
    in the morning
    and floating
    handsomely
    away in the evening.

    Trekking

    It's freezing
    cold and raining.
    Simply because
    I have bigger fish to fry,
    I have no choice
    but to keep on trekking
    along an endless lane,
    which will lead me to heaven,
    a castle in the air,
    or nowhere~
    it's anyone's guess.
    Under a gloomy sullen sky,
    I have to imagine
    the scintillating spring
    is still here
    and the icy tear
    of winter
    on my face is nothing
    but summer rain.

    Prettiest Girl

    Supposing
    a good poem
    can be compared to
    a pretty girl,
    then without a doubt,
    you're the prettiest poem
    I've ever read.
    I fell head over heels
    in love with you
    at first sight.
    Now the more
    I read you,
    the more
    I'm attached to you
    as well as
    your profound fragrance.
    I have no choice
    but to commit you
    to my memory
    in case
    you might leave me
    one day
    without bidding me
    adieu.

    Moody Weather

    All of a sudden,
    without rhyme or reason,
    you're sadly sobbing
    like a crying baby
    this morning.
    Wasn't it reported yesterday
    that you're going to shine
    for many a day
    to come?
    After many an autumn
    have slipped away,
    you're still lucky
    to remain bewitching
    yet moody
    like a sentimental lady
    at play.
