love poems for Qixi festival
The Qixi Festival, also known as the Qiqiao Festival, is a Chinese festival celebrating the annual meeting of the cowherd and weaver girl in mythology. It falls on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month on the Chinese calendar.
Nowadays, Chinese people celebrate this special day in various ways. Many young lovers in China go out for a special Chinese Valentine's Day candlelit dinner. People often float red, pink, and white helium-filled balloons or hang fresh flowers above their dining table. They like to create a romantic atmosphere with music wafting through the room. Valentine's Day movies also are very popular in China. So how about reciting love poetry to the one you cherish?
let me have a look at the poems for Qixi festival.
Immortals at the Magpie Bridge
Translated by Xu Yuanchong
Clouds float like works of art,
Stars shoot with grief at heart.
Across the Milky Way the Cowherd meets the Maid.
When Autumn's Golden Wind embraces Dew of Jade,
All the love scenes on earth, however many, fade.
Their tender love flows like a stream;
Their happy date seems but a dream.
How can they bear a separate homeward way?
If love between both sides can last for aye,
Why need they stay together night and day?
Remember the saying,"Full of merit, yet poetically, man dwells on this earth"? Let's be a little different on this year's Chinese Valentines' Day !
Finally, best wishes for you and enjoy Qixi festival
