Ivy Roof - Poem by Jane H. Hu

Click here to listen to Ivy Roof The campus palm trees wave mysteriously,
We pass the Lotus pond in starry light.
Amid round leaves there stand a spirit white
A lotus blooms in moonlight fragrantly.
You help me climb dark stairways gently;
We sit atop an ivy roof at night.
The moon, a hanging lamp on trees, is bright
And we, on ivy leaves, talk seriously
From life to death, form joy to agony.
We dare to dream: what will our future be ...
Your brilliant talents challenge destiny!
The moon pales; summer night breathes silently;
Your passion, tender love and ecstasy
Still wander; fate is what I fail to see.
