This Winter You Came - Poem by Cigeng Zhang

This winter you came
Clouds in bloom
For a sweetheart
You lost

This winter you felt
A snowed wall was melt
For a sweetheart
You met

This winter you watched
Magpies arrived
For a sweetheart
You missed out

This winter you understood
Your sweetheart cried
This winter you promised
You came … you stayed?

    I made a foolish comment about the absence of emotion in the previous poem. I didn't see the obvious explanation: You were describing a deserted place; people are only temporarily absent. But this poem is very different: in boldly written stanzas you give us the main events in one man's amorous life. The repetition of the words WINTER and SWEETHEART emphasize what's really important: that other person who deserves better treatment by the man, and the passage of time. The question mark at the end shows us this drama is too complex for a neat ending. The ordeal of sustaining a genuine live relationship proves to be provisional: nothing is settled yet.
