Fourth Motive Of The Rose - Poem by jia shuixing

don't be afflicted by the flowing petal
it's also being, this way to cease to be

you'll still see roses, curled up in ashes
dead in your garden, untouched, free

i put my perfume into my thorns even
far away, the wind still speaks of me

and in losing myself i am remembered
i am endless by means of shedding leaves

(tentative translation of Quarto Motivo da Rosa, by brazilian poetess Cecilia Meireles)
