"Forgive and Forget".

Veiled in mist
Cranes with silky wings fly
Nightingales whisper
Crickets sing softly
Dragonflies float above lotuses.

Ribbons of bamboo leaves
Twist in the wind
Writing messages
Flowing in the wind.

Stories speak of untold riches
Untold bravery and untold cruelty
Cries have been softened by
The beautiful words of Wang Wei.

The inspiration for this poem was studying abroad in China during the fall semester of 12th grade.
