Four reasons

The world is reigned by four SEASONS.

Four solid ELEMENTS are in the ground.

Equivalent to these and firm are the reasons,

at the bottom of my heart I found.

 

Reasons for my love after a time so short,

are neither more nor less than four.

They are what drives me to court,

and shall, I am certain, grow to be more.

 

Flowers and trees blossom at SPRING,

has a soft, tepid warm and pleasant AIR,

same way I flourish when I hear you sing.

Of you, I desire to take care.

 

Hot and dedicated is the SUMMER,

full of abundance of passion, like FIRE.

Every time we meet hits me like a hammer.

To be with you, I do admire.

 

It is colourful, and clear the air in AUTUMN,

substantial is it and down to EARTH.

A harmonious concord from top to bottom,

is what we have, to abide – it’s worth.

 

Quiet and strong is the WINTER, and white,

solid frozen and clear is the WATER.

I will keep you warm, hold you tight,

to hold together – love shall be the cotter.
