    Thanks, Jerrybaldy, for the generous words, which are really encouraging, but as I mentioned earlier, the main purpose I penned in English is to practice and use English as often as possible. Secondly, I'm more than thankful for this place to save all of my pieces without paying any rent.

    A Rusty Wind Bell~~a revised version

    You once said that
    you were a rusty wind bell
    waiting for a breeze
    to produce a melodious tinkling.
    Though I never judged a book by its cover,
    yet, at first sight,
    your old clothing really dispelled me.
    Not until I read your story,
    did I see that
    you saved most of your earning
    to help those in need.
    To protect the poor and the weak,
    you're never daunted
    when confronted with monstrous bullies
    in spite of the fact that
    you're not stronger
    than the poor and the weak themselves.
    Yellow bells have always
    mesmerized me
    whenever I run across one,
    but now I think otherwise~
    you're the most enthralling bell of all
    whether rusty or not.

    Another good one.

    Reminiscing


    Reminiscing
    we were once like Persian daisies
    swaying in an early spring field,
    so colorful and intoxicating
    that the graceful butterflies
    and the busy bees came every day
    to steal our sweet nectar.
    Anyhow,
    carefree as the wandering white clouds
    in the blue sky,
    we didn't mind at all.
    After the season of flower showering,
    like fledgling white doves,
    we flew high and far toward the heavens
    to seek our own separate blissful home.
    In the blink of an eye,
    we have come to the autumn of life.
    Though slanting rays of the setting sun
    between falling leaves
    are extremely poetic and enthralling,
    there're no more rose petals
    on our cheeks,
    and white snow flakes
    are stealthily falling on our hair,
    once so black and silky.
    Nonetheless,
    we still own a heart of gold,
    and still aspire to see each other again.

    ~~written before a high school reunion



    懷念

    懷念 我們曾經 恰似
    初春大地上的 波斯菊
    多彩多姿 而 令人著迷
    以至於 翩翩飛舞的蝴蝶
    及 忙碌的蜜蜂
    每天都來偷採 青春甜美的花蜜
    而 我們 一點也不在意
    無憂無慮 恰似
    藍天上 悠閒的雲朵

    待 落英繽紛的季節之後
    如 羽翼漸豐的飛鴿
    我們飛向 天地四方 各自尋覓
    未來幸福的歸處
    轉眼之間
    已至生命中 秋詩篇篇
    夕陽無限好的黃昏
    雖然 臉頰上 已沒了
    紅玫瑰的花瓣
    雖然 白雪已 悄悄地 飄上了
    少年時的 烏黑秀髮
    也不能阻礙 一顆熱誠的心
    一個想要重聚的願

    Something Better Left Unsaid

    Wondering why spring
    is late coming,
    you feel lonely and melancholy
    in February.
    I won't say anything
    but keep smiling
    when presenting
    you with a bunch of rosemary.

    Our Youth Memory


    Supposing
    our youth memory
    is compared to a puzzle,
    without you,
    this dreamy scenery
    is nothing but a riddle.

    Happy Valentine

    Yesterday
    I presented you with a flower
    but you preferred flour.
    And today,
    with a stroke of genius, you know,
    you knead it into dough.
    Come tomorrow
    will you turn it into sweet love
    or bitter sorrow?

    Expecting


    When we were young
    as spring
    and rhododendrons were
    in full bloom,
    we ran across each other.
    I naively supposed~
    our brief encounter in this world
    was the consequence
    of our long separation
    in the previous life.
    Just as those pretty flowers
    couldn't last forever,
    so the moment swallows flew back,
    our youth had flown away.
    Just because we couldn't avoid
    waving farewell,
    we'd appreciate our reunion
    more in next life.

    Read This Poem of Mine


    It's already mid February,
    and maybe
    spring is still late coming
    at your place.
    If it's still freezing
    when you get up in the morning,
    why not make yourself a cup of hot coffee
    and read this poem of mine~
    the former may keep you warm
    whereas the latter
    will surely
    bring a smile to your face.
