Salute


Salute



The air from Wobo bridge
Blew the frail’s fringe
The scent of lilacs
Got the boy's shirt-front drunk

The two braids
Were like two buds,
Not open yet, so charmingly bright,

In her green school bag
Was a red diary
Where there were two painted butterflies in flight

I would salute you deeply
If that me often
Flashes across your blue memory.


Note: Wobo Bridge refers to a bridge located in South Lake Park in Shenyang. China.

It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
