Alo: Some of the ancients' poems are quite good... the poems' words, they were important to the ancient era... not as much important today, nor easily translated, but still, there is still felt a sense of beauty in what the poems said... I have been trying to find a pleasing arrangement of words, an arrangement that might let the old poems better relate to today's world...


Be majestic season, reciprocation,

Climb his high mountain...

Ridge mountain... lofty, summit...

Grant river You, to flow into river He...

Paint heavens below,

Praise season, it reply...

Season reciprocate his gift.


De: That is very pretty... good thoughts also... he who creates beauty, the beauty reciprocates... the rivers, are those their names?

Alo: Yes... the old names, mean different things today... I suspect that the He River is now today known as Yellow River... but... interesting how the words can now be felt to imply what today's words mean...

De: Yes... 'you', flowing into 'he'... wife giving of her heart to husband... spirit of one, flowing to another... if both hearts good, the other heart reciprocates the good... ah, but more the poem becomes beautiful with the thoughts...

Alo: Very much so... to create, to paint the world with beauty... the beauty then pleases one's self... the gift, of giving beauty, reciprocates...

De: I feel... different inside... a blend of warmths and happinesses... I had never before heard a poem that gave to me good feelings... this is very special to me... thank you, for reciting your way of the poem.



Alo: You are very welcome... I enjoy the poem also... new feelings within me also...

De: And the poem, it was one of the many that were popular within the ancients' era?

Alo: Yes, hundreds of poems, very popular... it has been said that the ancient culture, the people often spoke of the poems... perhaps it would be similar to today's people speaking of television shows... almost everyone now watches television... back then, maybe almost everyone also wanted to hear the poems.

De: I wonder, how many of the ancient people felt similar as we do, when hearing the poem... I also wonder if they often interpreted the words to have a similar meaning of reciprocation... to you, and me, reciprocation is so very important... to many people, though, they do not wish to reciprocate...

Alo: True... if, people were to reciprocate, then imagine how wonderful the world would be today... people do not create beauty, so no beauty to reciprocate... do not bathe Nature, so no clean Nature to reciprocate...

De: Yes, very true, but... there, Nature does reciprocate, always... Nature's way, reciprocates man's dirtiness...

Alo: Ha! True... funny to me now... people sometimes complain of their dirty world... they do not realize that all things reciprocate in some way... the people do not realize that they have been reciprocated their own behavior... their mountain, tiny... their summit, low... they did not paint... they merely splattered without care...

De: At home, outside our windows... we feel good of heart, to gaze outside and see the green trees near our windows... we planted the seeds one step from our house... now, the seeds reciprocate... the trees, Nature reciprocated to us... Nature's beauty, some, began with us...

Alo: Though a man tame his own mind, it is the woman who births his heart... without creative reciprocation, a man is hollow... a painting that was never seen, never appreciated... a river never swam... a cool breeze in summer that was never felt...

De: To care for other people, to create beauty... but to not give the caring for others to feel...

Alo: A simple little poem... and now, my heart is happy for the ancients... they had beauty... it was their own... the poems speak the words...
