To Her I came for sustenance!
In Her open arms I sheltered, though still trembling;
Because Her arms remained wide open to fall out of
Though still vulnerable or so I felt,
Like leaves on a tree Her people shed me.
Time brought us closer;
Home She played and comfort She gave me.
My other half She brought closer to me
My own seed She brought to life, a family I now head.
From you it is hard to depart, Binzhou
Because to you much appreciation I owe.
Your wings ever so quickly you spread
Your eyes ever so widely you capture.
To you ever so closer I feel
In you ever so secure I feel
To you ever so earnest I wish to be
For, in you I found my feet
Through you I had my own feather- My first Red Feather
And then again
Fun like food you offer in lumps
Friends like fiends you conjure
Always holding me alert
My fears and tears you mix.
Oh Binzhou! My smiles and tears you’ve seen!
Pains and gains you give and take!
I can’t say how much I love you!
