Father, let's be seated talking about the daffodils,
The hasty passers-by in our house:
Why their bloom is delayed day after day,
The coldness should not be the only case.
So many daffodils are blooming then withering,
But ours are still looking and waiting,
Like two old friends after a long parting,
Without any word, at each other, just long gazing.
How I wish they will never have flowers,
Just raise their buds high, and the greenness ever-lasting.
Like the unspoken feeling between you and me,
We don't need to say too much,
Secrets will meet secrets in silence.
