Treasure Island

Rose Lu ( Bing hua )

Let Us

Let’s pace into the pastoral
To and fro where rape-seeds bloom bright
And yellow flowers are prettified by circles sunlight.
White clouds write down their heartstrings in the azure blue
And tread pieces of earthly goo

I lower myself but you don’t see
So let me wave the purple scarf in my hand
My dear. You're as delicate as rape-seed flowers
And romantic as the purple scarf,
Can you catch up with me?

Let’s board the sailing skiff
Toss in torrents of the brine
And detour white waters and rocks risky
Let’s reside where there are fish fresh and water fine
and stay far away from the bustle-hustle of the world

So long as I know you and you know me
We’ll settle down on the ISLAND
Use conch shells as bowls
And adorn our house with corals
From now on we’ll cease to repine for the other strand
Let’s accompany each other more and more
And heed the deep’s moans evermore

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
