Ode To The Plum by Anonymous

another translation from Mary Tang on her blog Life is But This

Life is But This 命

The name of the poet is lost but his words endure like the winter plums…

Ode To The Plum

The north wind seeks to strike a man down

Shrivels a thousand greens and drops a thousand flowers

Whoever gave the winter plum its rarified airs

To flaunt the only silver flowers on this fine day

(c) Mary Tang 鄧許文蘭 2017
