During freezing January
Green foliage is numb
Basked by the weltering rays
And flowers Look at the amorphous sky
When plumes fly As sprightly as golden birds
Heckling pensive clouds
Poised with mystery
Beyond the poetic languages.
In the foggy evening
The sky is overcast
And the dry wind asks the leaves:
“Are you up for any fun with me ?”
The leaves make emaciated countenance
and speak in masticated sound
” We are no more for fun.”
In the chilly night
The foliage is clasped by the frozen cold.
And wailing flowers and leaves
Lie crumpled on the ground Under a big block of ice.
