A Beauty - Poem by Feipeng Shang

Translated by Yiyan HAN (c)

Who I've met, I'm certain,
Is a truly beauty. She'd been hiding
In the ten thousand years I was waiting.
All of a sudden, she comes to my side
Just when I'm going to give up

A beauty isn't pretty, nor beautiful. At first glance,
She even isn't very sexy, glamorous,
Or flirtatious, nor a showstopper. A beauty
Isn't a woman, when glanced at, one would instantly fancy

A beauty lets one feel refreshing and happy
A beauty is like the blue sky, near and afar
A beauty is a green grassland, and a blooming thorny rose
A beauty can be furious, but she's a poison of harmless

A beauty lets you feel your airway cleared,
When seeing her, if having difficulty to breathe
A beauty is spring water, clean air
And a newly ploughed land in spring

A beauty isn't the sort of woman who makes
Your heart pound. She's the spring wind
Blowing on your face, the scent of wheat in the fields,
And the woman you'll desire for your whole life

A beauty is a woman who's clean, generous, honest
Tender yet aristocratic, and kind yet arrogant
One dare not move in front of her
And she's is a university leading us forward

A beauty isn't easy to be discovered
And might be neglected if she walks in front of you
Because she won't voluntarily tell you the truth.
She'd quietly disappear among crowds

In her heart, a beauty has the man she wants
If she loves you, she'll pursue you regardless. In front of her man
She shows her true character, full of the seductive scent of her body.
A beauty is a dose of good medicine

I've encountered the beauty, by chance
And now am in her trap. I fear nothing
But falling in love with her, my beauty

    I love your definitions of beauty- -those kinds of beauty live on while age takes down the physical beauty sag by sag, line by line, skin tag by skin tag. The sooner we all turn to inner beauty and be drawn to it and revel in it the better our lives will be. Well written. 10 (Report)Reply
