Going Home

A poem for Chinese New Year 2019

Going Home (Part 1)
Chinese New Year 2019: Going Home (Part 1), a poem by Haunting Angel

While birds fly back to their nests,
Men flock back to their hometowns,
Taking their wives and children along
From sun up ’til sun down

Crossing over seas and bridges
To get to grandma’s place
Just in time for a steamboat dinner
And a smile on grandpa’s face

Abalone, prosperity,
Dumplings like gold and silver;
Prawns for laughter
Fishes for more,
Coversations that never bore.
