    Sparrow

    I've never had a liking for you
    because it's true
    that you always steal farmers' crop
    and chat in public nosily and nonstop

    I've never paid attention to you
    for you're tiny and insignificant too

    However when I see
    you have to take care of your family
    I realize you're not at all lousy

    Cherry Blossoms Are Blooming

    Cherry Blossoms are blooming
    extremely calming
    and inviting
    inviting spring and you
    to pay them a visit

    If you take a liking
    remember don't go with Albert
    but with Robert
    for the former will chip off a piece
    of your purple haze
    put it under a microscope
    to see why you're so gorgeous

    Yet the latter will praise
    your inner beauty
    which has finally come to shine
    in the refreshing spring

    Silly puppies

    Silly puppies

    Take my advice
    when you're ten and four
    never think of a pretty showy girl
    as your lifelong diva

    By and by
    to your innocent love
    she'll prove
    worse than a broken jar
    at least
    the latter doesn't bark

    This Blue River ~~revised

    In the quiet afternoon
    there's someone
    who seems to be sighing
    and sobbing

    If not
    why is there this blue river
    which has flooded all over my vein
    when it isn't raining
    on the outside
    when the summer's grace
    is still here
    to linger
    when the wailing wind
    of the winter
    is still out of sight

    Should I split
    this blue pain in half
    with a knife
    or simply let it
    drain off
    through the tip of my pen

    The Spring Rain Has Come Back

    The spring rain has come back
    from a long journey
    and has been lingering for a couple of days
    All the trees are sprouting
    and little birds chirping
    The sleepy land seems to be waking up
    from its deep winter slumber
    whereas
    when and how
    will the seed inside me
    begin to bud
    since you're still nowhere to be found

    A Stroll on Campus

    Good morning
    lovely lasses and lads
    please don't bother to clean up the fallen leaves
    on the campus
    after the early spring rain
    for they're no different from the flowers
    in April
    or the colorful butterflies
    in July
    You may wonder
    whether it's practical
    to leave them scattering here and there
    on the pavement
    Definitely not
    but they forms a yellow brick road
    which is leading me to a paradise of beauty
    when it's still too chilly
    for the spring blossoms to bud

    A Pretty Yellow Rose for Sol

    Dear sol
    Youíre a pretty yellow rose
    and itíll absolutely be a great loss
    for those guys who
    donít even have a chance
    to savor your sweet fragrance
    especially when the earth
    is still wrapped up in the icy cold air

    But I dare not dream
    to hold you tight in my arms
    for I'm afraid
    this poor heart of mine
    will be pricked time after time
    by those invisible thorns

    So it's better
    that I admire you
    at a distance
    and praise your charm
    in my poem
    rather than have a date
    if you're truly my soul mate

    Iím a Dewdrop at Dawn~~revised

    I'm a dewdrop at dawn
    waking up to the early morning sunshine
    caressing my face
    and disturbing my sweet dream

    When a ladybug is scurrying
    for the shade of a weeping willow
    I feel like an idle cloud
    wandering in the blue sky
    catching a glimpse of a yellow buttercup
    smiling in a green pasture

    When the evening
    spreads the sunset glows around
    like purple and orange petals
    on the ground
    I'm going to sing a sad song
    for a weather-worn vagabond

    When the night's eyes start to twinkle
    I'll be a shooting star
    flying across the murky sky
    and shedding some light
    for a lonely traveler

    When Flame Trees Only Bloom in Memory


    The summer wind
    has gone chasing
    after the shadow of spring
    traveling far
    and leaving behind
    only withered heart shaped leaves
    dreaming of flame trees
    once blooming
    in an exotic land

    No More Rainy Days

    When the last cold snap finally ended
    a few days ago
    you were shining like a daisy
    in the early spring
    at that moment I naively thought

    There were no more rainy days

    Nonetheless
    I woke up this morning
    to hear the sound of drizzling
    outside my window
    and it still keeps raining now
    wet and cold

    Though you looks most sadly beautiful
    when tiny raindrops are all over
    your pretty face
    yet how can I stand
    to see you standing all alone
    shivering in the garden
    all day long

    Never in the Evening~~revised


    If you'd like to grace my humble home
    please do come in the morning
    but never in the evening
    for I donít think
    I can hold back my tears
    to see your petals falling
    and floating here and there
    when the afterglow is so enchanting

    Pretty Peaches Are Blooming Again

    Pretty peaches are blooming again
    in this lonesome land
    yet I know clearly
    it's not owing to the spring rain
    or the spring
    that keeps those pink blossoms sprouting
    and floating
    like the colorful butterflies flying
    here and there
    in the passionate summer
    It's all because of your sweet smile
    that makes me feel no longer
    like a lonely traveler
    in this journey of life

    For You're an Orchid in the Valley

    For you're an orchid in the valley
    not to be found in an alley
    I guess
    to smell your fragrance
    I’ll have to climb over many a mountain
    and trudge across numerous rivers
    If only I'm able to provide you with shelters
    from the sun and the rain
    I don't mind planting myself on earth
    like a nearby whispering pine
    whispering in your ear many a line
    of verses
    when the sun rises
    in the morning
    in spring

    May Our Love Be like a Green Green Watermelon

    Wish you forever young and green
    as the lush skin of a watermelon
    And my love for you will be fervent
    as the red passion within
    abundant and exuberant
    If you quench my longing and thirst
    with your sweet juice
    I'll spread those precious jewels
    in your place



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    I wrote the above short poem, May Our Love Be like a Green Green Watermelon, a few years ago when I started to pen poetry to improve my broken English.
    As for the title, we used to have a watermelon day in summer when I was in college though I canít remember on which exact day. On that day, girls and boys are free to visit their friends in their own dormitory. It was a long tradition that boys should take a watermelon with them when visiting their female friends in their rooms.
    It was said that the red meat of the watermelon symbolizes passion and love. And the numerous seeds stand for their fruitful results of love. So next time, when youíre visiting your future spouses, donít forget to take a watermelon with you especially in sizzling hot summer.

    Note: The Watermelon Day is a tradition of my alma mater only, not my country.

    Bubblews is fun and makes you rich.

    My Window Is Opened Only for You

    If I open my window now
    I know
    I must be able to see
    all the vibrant butterflies
    chasing one another
    like playful young lads and lasses
    running wild in the meadow
    where numerous small flowers
    are swaying gracefully
    in the spring breeze
    But sorry
    I feel too lazy
    to open it up
    It's not that
    I've got a worried mind
    so it's tightly closed as my heart
    but that
    if you happen to be intrigued
    to know why
    you haven't yet
    graced my humble place
