My mother wrote this poem to my father
I think in their courting days. It seems
suitable for our spring now springing.  


Inevitable

A stream is singing lullabyes,
Its song has reached my ear;
And though I’m far and far away
     How can I but hear?



Violets are blossoming,  
Their hue has come to me;
And though I’m far and far away
     How can I but see?

A heart is holding tenderness;
Mine once it set aglow;
And though I’m far and far away
     How can I but know?
