Their homes in protected arbors...

Offering Spring emerge
To listen to the downpour drops falling

Barely yet started.

Holding up just to demonstrate her face

Be not, then, my companions, disheartened

For Springtime soon will be with us,
Also, the blooms we will welcome:
Daffodils, so brilliant and yellow,
Hyacinths of differed tones,
As they gesture their heads, in happiness,
Letting us know they bring uplifting news...

And every one of the seasons of snows and sins;
The days partitioning sweetheart and significant other,

Furthermore, in green underwood and spread
Bloom by bloom the spring starts.
