FECUND Gimme butterfly kisses! Picnic on literature Stories with a hole in it

In memoriam 1989.6.4 ~ 2012.6.4 | Tiananmen Square on this day

Earth from Above, Yann Arthus-Bertrand


 Bai Juyi (772–846)

Far far across the plain

 Spreads the grass

 One year to another

 It withers and returns

 Never extinguished

 By the prairie fires

 With Spring wind

 It leaps back to life

 Bringing near a fragrance

 From an age old path

 As the green sward overgrows

 Crumbling city walls

 So once again my friend

 We must part

 With feelings deep as grass

 Overtaking my heart
