Lovey Canlas


A Poem Reader


I walk through the pages,
Sing through each chirpy line and rhyme,
Weep through each emotional expression,
Or seem to leap and dance
Through each delightful
And animated motion;

I live temporarily in this realm,
In this book you silently wrote,
As my finger runs through each leaf,
Through every vine of words so intricate,
Exploring every branch of interesting phrases,
Or twigs and shrubs entangled in your sentence;

With my eyes caressing every curve and slope,
All sentiments are there enclosed,
Within meaningful graphic of words,
Too vivid, too vibrant to behold,
Your feelings and thoughts
Communicated in melodramatic plot;

I would say, excellent if I am stupid,
Or would be in awe if I am an idiot,
But I am just a reader
Who happen to read your work,
I don't have to understand it word for word,
I simply appreciate
That you express your thought.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
