Poem – Winter Clouds – Mao Zedong

Winter clouds snow-laden, cotton fluff flying, 

None or few the unfallen flowers. 

Chill waves sweep through steep skies, 

Yet earth’s gentle breath grows warm. 

Only heroes can quell tigers and leopards 

And wild bears never daunt the brave. 

Plum blossoms welcome the whirling snow; 

Small wonder flies freeze and perish.
