Trumpet daffodils on dew-drenched leaves,
snowy pointed mountains spearing the blue sky,
green velvety carpet with colorful flowers made me cry
in appreciation and memorize a far away scenery.
Serene rivers with vapor thin clouds in the morning,
broken wild plants flowing by marble - like edges,
the bright illuminated sunrays piercing the universe
enlightened the love of nature and lovers' well being.
The weeping willow boughs in the wintry weather,
with ice - coated branches sparkling in the windy evening
like chandeliers, brought to mind a long ago feeling,
oscillated with the singing of lovebirds that snuggled together.
White-capped waves in the raging of the sea,
the trembling earth showed the chagrined state of mind to be.
