"Rebirth"

Random Poetry List XLV

Spring goes, and the hundred flowers.
Spring comes, and the hundred flowers.
My eyes watch things passing,
my head fills with years.
But when spring has gone not all the flowers follow.
Last night a plum branch blossomed by my door.

Man Giac (Vietnamese, AD 1051-1096)
tr. Nguyen Ngoc Bich with W. S. Merwin
