A pattern poem for this wonderful collection:
The series of seasons evidently pushes forward,
all at once i'm startled by means of the finishing of the year.
Lifting my eyes I seize sight of the iciness crows,
Calling mournfully as though eager to complain.
the daylight is chilly instead of gentle,
Spreading over the 4 corners like a cloud.
a chilly wind blows fitfully in from the north,
Its unhappy whistling filling courtyards and houses.
Head raised, I gaze towards Spring,
yet Spring can pay no realization to me at all.
Time a galloping colt glimpsed via a crack,
the faucet [of loss of life] on the door has its predestined time.
How may still I no longer recognize, one that has left the world,
And for whom floating clouds are already familiar?
within the backyard there grows a rosary-plum tree:
Whose sworn friendship makes it attainable to endure.
