The last hug, by a pretty bug

I took this photo Nov 7th (many years ago)…seeing that the bee was desperate on that little flower…I wrote this “poem” (sorry I had no formal training in writing poems, so it is not my spoon of honey :) .

let me embrace you
tightly
once more

for snow is coming
tomorrow

icy knives
of the winter wind
will cut away your
pretty petals

frost will not
appreciate
your beauty

the hasty tongue
of the freezing rain
will not taste
your sweetness
ever so subtle

let me embrace you
once more

that last drop
of sweetness

will give me strength
to fight off

six months of boredom
darkness
bitter cold

but I will be here again
in May

when again you put on these
pretty yellow dresses

that make my life
so sweet

that make the world
bright and gay

让我再一次
把你
紧紧拥抱
因为明天
大雪将临

冬季北风
的冰刀
要把你的
花瓣切掉


无眼
不会理会你的美貌

冰雨
他的舌头好快
尝不到
你那隐约
的幽甜

让我再一次
把你拥抱

最后的
一滴甜蜜
会给我力量
来度过
6个月的
无趣
苦冷


我五月又会回来

那时, 你又会
穿上这黄色的衣着

让我的生命
如此甘甜
让世界充满
光明和快乐
