"Across the Hill of Gratitude" - A Poem

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

Author: Joey Zhou

Translated from Chinese: Joey Zhou

Music: YouTube link:

What pierces the dawn is a trace of dew

A bird chirping resounds through the emptiness

What accumulates affection is a greeting

What tears apart sadness is a smile

Near mountains near, Far mountains far

The near mountains are warm

Longings are there in the distant mountains;

It's a drum that rings the bell

The autumn rain is a cloud

The sad parting is a touch of sunset

Kissing the earth is a dark green

Near mountains near, Far mountains far

There is a moon near the mountains

There is morning sunshine in the distant mountains

Moon, sunshine, warmth, longing

This is my real heart.
