†††††††† THE GREEN EXPRESSION OF LOVE

†††††††† ††††††††††††translated by N. Saomai

 

 

†††††††††††††††† To you, I want not to say

of all these old hats― every or any kind of.

Our planet is round, and thatís for sure.

 

To you, my intended expression of love

will be engraved onto the bells

of the churches in town.

Every morn and every eve as the bells toll

you would surely hear the call

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† for love

bouncing off the tower

― the mystical sacredness.

 

In this space of peacefulness

I like the bald bird sitting on the top

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††of the tower

The humanís true love which I possess

youíve not realised― thatís the only regret.

 

Amid the resonant church bells in the parish

the intended expression of love is lovely green.
