                 Praise to Egg Flowers

 

  The branches of the tree are thumb-sized.

  They go up very forkedly.

  The flowers blossom only at the branch tips.

  Their “ goal”  is to tell that spring season is coming.

  The petals are albumen-white and the centers are yellow.

  This is why people call them egg flowers.

  Their charming fragrance puffs around.

  People there are enchanted with joyful mind.

  The whole flowers drop a few days after blossom .

  Pick them up and take home, and feel warm in mind.

 

Remark.  It was written on 26 February 2018. The Latin name of egg flower is Plumeria Rubra.

      

            鸡蛋花吟                 

                     

   拇指粗枝,繁叉上行。

   枝头绽放,为报春临。

   白花黄心,由此得名。

   幽香扑鼻,醉心悦情。

   数日朵落,家添温馨。

      I would use "glimpse" instead of "glance".

      Great to see this. I'd like you to confirm, that many people of Dalian don't think they are part of Liaoning and that they like to be thought a locality on its own, like Shanghai. Another interesiting thing is when I visited Dalian not long ago, the tourist guide there often talked about the former leader (you know whom, a very sensitive one) of the city, and said he was wronged and things like that to tourists, very surprising...
