Scent of Books

看一册小说荡气 吟一句情诗回肠 拂去古籍泪痕 历史总叫人神伤 卷一帘春意阑珊 听一声幽幽长叹 河山变色骤然 别时容易见时难 听一窗蕉风作响 弹一曲椰雨悠扬 游过黄河长江 南洋依然是梦乡 念一世儿女情长 守一方文化故乡 沿着梦想滑翔 满室书香梦亦香


My heart flutters when I read a novel, The feeling lingers after my love poem recital. I brush away the tears on the classics, The sorrow history causes me is epic. Drawing the screen brings to sight a fading spring, As I listen to a long, sorrowful sighing. The mountains and the rivers change rapidly, Because goodbyes are easy—meeting again poses greater difficulty. I have heard the banana trees rustling in the breeze, The rain song of the coconut trees. I have swum across the Yellow River and Changjiang But my heart remains in Nanyang. While savouring the love that lasts forever, We still zealously guard our culture. We glide towards the future with our dreams, smelled like the scent of books that our room brims with.
