The rosaries in my backyard
Used to bloom every month, just like the calendar

Harvests of the leeks I collect
One after another cucumber I bring in

My own backyard
The safeguards of health
After busying days and nights

A couple of wild ducks soar up into the sky
Quack, quack quack
Miss the roses I

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
