Chinese Village


papercut   SHARE THIS ARTICLE

White house red tiled roof
small yellow flowers
grandmother sleeping at front door

old caged chickens stacked
on the village river bank
watching ducks swim free

trees with pink buds over
yellow and green bamboo fence
house with red tiled roof

weeding garden fields
workers using tools to cut
baskets to carry

sheds hold piles of wood
dried thatching reeds beside
fields of new spring green

Chinese village girl
studying at western school
China’s future safeguarded
