Life's Like That!

A butterfly enters my room,
It circles and circles until it tires,
The dazzling light blinds its eyes!

Obviously itlongs to quit the room!
I put out the light and open the window,
The joyful creature flies into darkness!

I close the window and light up my room again!
I hear the scraping sound on the window pane,
A grass hopper scratches the glass with its thorny legs,
It is curious to enter the room!

Life's like that!
The butterfly does not tell the grasshopper,
And the grasshopper does not ask the butterfly!
