    There's a poem expressing a similar feeling. A famous Chinese poet named Su Dong Po (also named Su Shi) wrote it in 1095. Here it is (I translate it into English; If you can read Chinese, make sure you read the Chinese version cause it's way much better^_^) :

    A Butterfly in Love with a Flower

    It is the time of the year

    When red petals drift away

    While apricots are still small and not sweet

    Most willow catkins have been blown away

    Yet everywhere the green grass can be seen

    Quietly a stream flows through the village

    And a pair of swallows forms a lovely scene


    Outside a wall of a house

    A man walks by

    Inside the wall

    A fair lady can be heard laughing on a swing

    The girl laughs

    The man listens

    Till the laughter inside the wall finally fades away

    The man utters a sigh

    The poet remarks

    Love irritates and the enchanted people can only sigh (Report) Reply

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
