VOLUME 8 NUMBER 1
LIKE A YELLOW LEAF
trees behind my fence tremble in autumn rain,
Yellow leaves fall to the ground making little sound,
From green to dead leaves you have a short life,
From my youth to old age it seems only one night.
Full of freshness in the glorious months of spring,
Losing your beauty day by day while you're wilting.
Like you, I remember being so lively,
As time slowly goes by, what can I keep with me?
A sullen mind, a morose soul, a weak body,
A feeling of loss or a sense of glory?
To have traveled on this planet for many years,
I have endured time of hardships and time of fears,
But I always tell myself, "Show smiles, and not tears
To whomever, to the last day when you disappear."
"Autumn leaves" is a painting of nature's beauty,
Life is meaningful when you live it humanly.
