yihuai ying


poverty gained


poverty gained
because of its right
because of the once lacking
because of it's reasonable
and that's her bad fate
arising from own strife
my dad doesn't say it mistakenly
now I understand

from my grandfather
my mind shaped
from my grandmother
my temper shortened
from my mother
I'm weakened
from my father
my illness derived
arms cut
feet handicapped
and how to explain
my careless bold way
that lead me to this fate?

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
