Overseas


So clear the crystal pool beneath the leaves,
Showing how they've bloomed and grown;
They're just girl friends at school once more,

So cool the crystal pool beneath the leaves,
And sweet to bare their feet and dip them in;
To see themselves in the mirror of old times,
Musing side by side on an overhanging tree.
