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.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
