Thank goodness for the internet! For an introduction to the poetry of China, check out the website called Chinese Poems. This is from a poem called "New Year's Watch" by Su Shi:
Soon now, we'll mark the year's end that approaches,
It's like a snake that crawls into a hole.
Already half its scaly length is hidden,
What man can stop us losing the last trace?
And even if we want to tie its tail,
No matter how we try, we can't succeed.
Happy New Year everyone, and don't forget our celebration being held tomorrow at 10:30 am. Here are some photos of our multipurpose room all set up for the gala!
