Shirley Created Poem and Music--031: What Is Spring and Where Is Spring?   

LISTEN TO SHIRLEY SINGING HER POEM

I am so lucky that I have got so much help from so many friends via emails, pictures, telephones and messages during I was in the most difficult time this week...

Monday morning, a short letter with a poetical language "Here in Eugene, the spring rain is falling tonight. I hope it is soon spring in your heart again." really made my eyes wet and touched the softest part in my heart -- the endless missing, sorry, pity and every thing to my friend whom I had lost last week... the endless appreciation to my parents, sister, brother, leaders in the company, all of the kind friends from China and the other side of the Ocean...   first time, I had a strong impulse to write a poem. So, I wrote it out in a weekly meeting within only about 20 minutes...

It should be my first poem if it can be called a poem in both of English and Chinese. I just felt there were many words in my chest that wanted to push out of my throat so that I had to write it out at once...

Then, in the short one week, I wrote 3 poems already...

I am not sure whether my writing dream was just started from this poem and whether I can really write in English and Chinese. Anyway, have done it.

Also, I wanted to write a piece of music to match my own poem. So, I also did that and wrote it out.

Now I have played the music and have sung the poem for you, for my friend whom I have lost and all of the kind people in the world here and hope you enjoy them...

What Is spring? Where Is Spring?

-- By Shirley Zhang


What is spring?
Where is spring?
Spring is from a warm wind,
spring is in a soft rain.
Spring is flying over green mountains,
spring is flowing with blue rivers...

What is spring?
Where is spring?
Spring is under the melted white snow,
spring is over the endless grass green.   
Spring is in the yellow narcissus,
spring is in the pink plum blossoms.
Spring is on the red camellia trees,
spring is pregnant by the nature mother...

What is spring?
Where is spring?
Spring is an endless missing,
spring is planting a green hope.
Spring is growing up from the hard winter.
Spring is a phoenix's rebirth
Spring is a sincere friendship,
spring is a great affection,
spring is a deep love.

Spring is just in your heart.
Spring is just in my heart...
Spring is just from all of the kind poeple's hearts...
