文/李莉

  1. 叶的一生
    —- 为叶感动而题

新叶护花萌(春)
绿叶顾花浓(夏)
熟叶露花荣(秋)
枯叶助花红(冬)

  1. The Lifetime of Leaves
    —- Written at the Inspiration of Leaves

In spring, you the new leaves guard flower buds
In summer, you the green leaves watch flowers blossoming
In autumn, you the matured leaves exhibit flowers
In winter, you the withered leaves turn into fertilizer for flowers to rebloom

  1. 根的祖祖辈辈
    —- 为根说几句话

安身漆黑之底
魂望澄蓝之宇
托举光明之脊
支撑向阳之华

  1. Roots and Their Ancestors
    —- Praise for Roots

You
Dwell in the darkness under the ground
Look up towards the blue sky
Raise the bright trunks and branches
And support beautiful trees under the sun

  1. 花的一世
    —- 感于花开一时,红颜短暂,然使命深远

承载前世的根源
携带枝叶的心愿
明了自身的责任
倾力怒放的情缘

  1. Momentary Blooming of a Flower
    —- Sentiment at the Short Lifespan yet Far-reaching Importance of Blooms

You
Inherit what the previous generation has handed down
Carry out what branches wish for
Understand what your responsibility is
And make what you could do for a full bloom

  1. 果的一世
    —- 叹果的实在、实用和重任

融四季明明雨露之滋
裹来生万代希望之籽
聚一世甘美醇香之精
贡万物生生不息之实

  1. The Whole Life of Fruits
    —- Admiration at the Authenticity, Usefulness, and Importance of Fruits

You
Accumulate the four seasons’ bright sunshine and nutritious raindrops
Bear the seeds that will carry on the species for thousands of years
Culminate in the extract of lifelong sweetness and fragrance
Provide the whole world with continuous supply of edible plant ovaries
