Colours of Cheerfulness


I love colours,
I love flowers,
I love butterflies,
I love small coloured
Fish and shills.

I love buds of roses,
Oh, I love kittens,
I love Lightening,
I love rain drops,
I love singing birds,
I free caged ones,
I love waves’ sound,
I love ringing springs,
I love to swim in rivers,
Oceans and lakes
As well
I love good food,
I love good juice.

I give good lectures,
I give good speeches,
I teach well,
I write well,
I paint well,
I design well,
I sing well,
I dance well,
I cook well,
Though I hate cooking,
And I rarely cook.

I mother well,
I love well,
But I still did not
Find a frank lover,
And may be will never do.
But who cares
With all of these
Treasures in me
And in my hand
I will say goodbye
To sadness;
To whatever
I lack or
Do not have,
And I
Should be happy,
For this is life
Not Paradise;
And lacking is
A fact for everybody.

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
