Winter Jasmine - Poem by Cherry Zhai

As every year
I see you again
It’s so cold, but you have already blossomed.
Why are you so impatient to come into bloom before the other flowers?
You are the flower touching me the most
How bright is your color!
Like the dazzling sunlight,
Gives us vigor,
Little yellow flowers,
Messenger of spring.

    hurry not thy flower bloom
    for they have life of their own
    and when they come in hurry
    will wilt sooner on a day

    The first flowers are the bravest, they are exposed and can freeze..... Maybe, that´s why they are the most beautiful. Take care. (Report) Reply
