Visible colours (Invisible passions)
Fade from
This world's
Human hearts
And flowers.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

I am no expert and am a Westerner but here goes. It is very subtle and hard to grasp but it reflects the way the passion of youth and even great love will fade and diminish over time.

And where shall we find/A world whose invisible colors/ Are fadeless?
