    A Hopeless Romantic

    Please don't put me in jail
    or even laugh at me
    if I'm still writing romantic poetry
    at the age of ninety.
    First of all,
    I will neither rob you of your lily,
    nor will I steal your daisy.
    Last but not least,
    it's my personal belief~
    romance will always keep me busy
    as well as
    oblivious of being doddery.

    We won´t, dear Angliholik. We are very proud of your delicate, nostalgic poems.

    The Power of Time



    I guess
    you never dreamed that one day
    you might lose your glory
    and be as humble as the grass.
    Likewise,
    I never realized that one day
    I might be
    able to appreciate a faded poppy
    until yesterday
    when time transformed me
    into an old dog from a puppy.

    Life's an Echo


    On the grounds that
    it keeps raining cats and dogs
    all day long
    in this part of the world,
    I feel so distraught that
    I've forgotten what to say to you.
    The only thing I can remember is,
    in a few words,
    "Life's simply an echo."
    Therefore,
    I have to let you go
    although you're as beguiling
    as a red poppy in spring
    which I've always been longing for.

    A Young Heart


    One day
    when we live to the age
    of an old oak tree,
    and we still have courage
    to stay on this stage,
    I guess
    all we need is not a wheelchair
    or crutches
    but a young heart.

    My Devotion to You


    My devotion to you is
    like a candle
    that burns itself every dark night
    until there're no more tears
    to shed
    simply to light up your life.

    Considering

    Considering
    my rose isn't willing to bloom
    without her thorn,
    to avoid being forlorn,
    I might just as well cut off my horn,
    and transform
    myself into a vulnerable deer,
    hoping
    she might hug me dear
    once in a blue moon.

    Dress like A Yellow Jacket


    If you're wondering
    why I dress like a yellow jacket
    this morning,
    please give a glance
    at the gloomy cloudy sky
    and you'll see why.
    I have no alternative
    but to vary my clothing
    to appear a bit cheerful
    seeing that
    I can't change the mournful
    howling of the wind.

    Please Smile and Be Happy



    Thanks to the dog poop
    you just stepped on,
    you felt woeful and helpless
    all the morning.
    Please smile and be happy;
    it's not because I'm going to give you
    a bunch of white carnations
    but because it's a long lane
    that has no turning.

    On the Contrary


    You said,
    you adore me
    for my being nimble and witty
    as an eloquent brook.
    On the contrary,
    the reason
    I love to be around you
    is that you are always so willowy
    and tranquil
    as a weeping willow.

    The Good Old Times


    Who said that
    the good old times,
    in view of the small number,
    are worth our treasuring?
    I'm sorry, but I beg to differ.
    Had it not been for you,
    they'd simply be black and blue.
    Thanks to you,
    they're fragrant as thyme
    and worth our reminiscing
    for a lifetime.

    Words Cut


    Those words
    you blurted out
    in a careless way
    were like a cold air mass
    in the dead of winter.
    I got blown farther away
    in a serious manner
    than you could guess.

    Do whatever We Want

    Let's wait for a sunny day
    and be my guest in May.
    We can shoot the breeze
    or blow our own horn
    while savoring wine and cheese
    as long as
    we're careful enough not to shoot
    ourselves in the foot.

    Talents Differ



    If you're not an expert
    in climbing a tree,
    don't ever feel upset
    because you're not a monkey.
    I know
    I'm not cut out for music
    but I've never felt pathetic.
    If, by chance,
    there're a couple of people
    who enjoy reading my poetry,
    then I'm lucky
    enough to be good at graffiti.
    If not, at least,
    I'm a big eater
    as well as
    a useful fertilizer maker.
