The Dandelion’s Date
YeWen (Aideo) Shao
Translation by Andrew Pratt

The dandelions sat in the lawn of your
primary school.
This was a special view in your memory.
From the trees came the voice and sound
of the cicadas.
Many years have passed by
and this continues to be pleasant.
Must very seriously make a decision
using the fate of the flick of a coin.
But don’t know where to go.
Flying together, a date.
It is so clear. I still believe it is possible.
More dreams, waiting to come true.
Traveling together, a date.
Then, where are you now?
