Poetry I like

TO AN OLD TUNE by Lu Kuei Meng

From Love and the Turning Year — One Hundred More Poems From the Chinese.

 

Men hope to last a hundred years.

Flowers last just for a Spring.

Just one day of wind and rain,

And they are scattered on the earth.

If they knew what was happening to them,

They would be as miserable as men.
