Qi Wu! (Rise & Dance In A Happy Mood) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey


Sha sha...sha sha

Ya ya...ya zha

(hui hui)

chu chu

tu tu

tui cheng

qi wu

chuan liu bu xi

ya ya
ya ya.



Drizzle drizzle

sound of bird song
sound of wings

little bird...little bird

heart palpitates

open one’s heart

rise and dance
in a happy mood!

The stream flows without stopping

... chuckling...chuckling....


Ok...ok...so it's my second Chinese poem and I said I'd stop after the first one! Bear with as I learn! This for my friend LiLi and attempts to capture her lovely spirit in mere words...an imposible task even in English! She whose heart always rises up and dances in a happy mood! The first thing I ever learned in Chinese was 'I LIKE LILI! '
