Hi, friends, it it near the time to visit plum blossoms. So, I would like to introduce a new Chinese classical poem Mei Hua ? Plum Blossomby Song Dynasty（960--1279）poet Wang Anshi（1021 - 1086）.
This poem admires the strong quality of plum blossoms', to keep their white, clean and beautiful no matter how cold it is, what a difficult environment they are living in...
As far as the poet Wang Anshi（1021 - 1086）.
I have made a introduction about him and his another poem -- Chinese New Year . You can review it via the links.
Plum plossom is a very important part in Chinese culture, so, I have introduced a Chinese folk song Praising Red Plum Blossom
As usual, I created a piece of music for the poem. Hope it is a little bit help to you to know this poem...
MAIN MEANING OF THE PEOM LISTEN TO SHIRLEY SINGING THE POEM
There are a few branches of plum blossoms
in the corner of the wall,
They're blossoming alone there
in the cold early spring,
I know they are not snow
from far away,
for its delicate fragrance
had been smelled
before I have seen them clear...
