When Night Falls I See You
I have never seen you before.
by April Fung
Or have I?
Are you the same person
Under the deceitful sun?
Whose blaze blinds commoners’ eyes
Whose envy forces you to wear a mask
Rust and iron; they ruthlessly dye
Your beauty do they hide
Such a fool am I!
For five years
I have lived in you and ignorance
Not until this day
Do I stop. And catch
A glimpse of your face:
Love at first sight it is!
The east the taste of the busy world
The west singing the song of countryside
Blended in the perfection of difference
With not a sound of dissonance
