Song Poetry: Lyrics to the Melody of Walking on the Grass  

By Ou Yangxiu (Song Dynasty)


The sky is clear after drizzles of the spring;

A hundred flowers blossom in their full beauty.

Swallows return in pairs; the parrot in the cape feels lonely.

Magnolias grow along the side of the wall; moss strews the ground.

I heard several voices singing in the distance.

Suddenly old memories crossed my mind, only with sadness.

About the poem: This poem describes flowers, swallows and nature in the spring. Everything wakes and is prosperous. Seeing this, the poet suddenly feels lonely and sad.
