Missing the Roses


The rosaries in my backyard
Used to bloom every month, just like the calendar
And brought me astounding beauty

But from the day vegs were planted in it
The roses has never bloomed
Not because their season is past
But because they refuse to do so

The vegs are watered every day
But the rosaries are left dried
Harvests of the leeks I collect
One after another cucumber I bring in

These days
Green food become luxury
My own backyard
The safeguards of health
After busying days and nights
I harvest taste
But forget romance
A couple of wild ducks soar up into the sky
Quack, quack quack
Miss the roses I

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
