Celebrating the New Year by Raymond Zhu


Celebrating the Spring Festival Modern poetry,

The New Year is a seed that crosses the emotional village

and sticks to the land with its chest.

In the warm season, it lights the dry flame of spring,

shining on mother’s silver hair.

The little body is filled with a grand spring!

The sound of joining one after another extends into a string of spring notes.

To celebrate the Spring Festival,

the modern poetry calendar gently opens to a new page.

Oh, the new year comes quietly to us with bright sunshine,

and we enjoy the joy with cheering hearts.

In the new year,

you have given us a lot of expectations and yearnings.



The New Year Is Coming by George Liu


January is almost over

soon it will be February

I know the new year is coming in a very short time

everyone everywhere will go home

to visit missing parents

or children

A year of hard work is all for these few days

to celebrate and revel

during the festival

roadside shops are closed

all I can see is red

and fireworks in the night sky。
