Love is Lonely

Ode to the Green

Ode to the Green
Rate this poem

1 FLOWER
At your last breath
A new life is promising
You sacrifice your beauty
To make the green eternity

2 FRUIT
Though burdened with ripeness
You always droop your head modestly
Providing both seed and food
Never have you complained

3 LEAF
Seldom have you received any praise
Though contributing a lot
To the fragrance of fruit

4 BRANCH
Bravely confronting the north wind’s attack
Shouldering all the weight
You manage to stand
To prepare strength for the growth of the coming days

5 ROOT
Buried silently underground
You never stop working hard
Nor do you ever struggle for fame

Flower, fruit, leaf, branch and root
Join together into green beauty
