A Poem

Poetry is meant to sooth us during this time of stress and worry due to COVID. Following is a poem I found in The Poetry Nook Anthology.


Little Red Peach, submitted by Frank Watson to The Poetry Nook Anthology

Red as a peach with a smile on her face,

Face with a smile as a peach in her place.

Willow that hangs and shakes its drapery low,

Low is the willow that hangs as wind will flow,

Waves the blossom as wind and hair entwine,

Entwines the hair and wind, this blossom of mine.

Roams the road as the moon sinks west,

West sinks the moon where the road roams best.

Loosely translated from “Bodhisattva” by Liu Dao (1511-1598)
