Morose & Melancholy

by Ilya Jewel Cheung

Morose – a bud in humble bloom 

With petals lit by nightly moon 

De la couleur sombre marron 

Qui m’enseigne comment je me sens. 

Melancholy – a sweet bird calling 

A song of hunger rising and falling 

Avec des plumes légères et douces 

Qui font pour moi des places en mousse. 

Spanning the future and past forgot 

Long they’ve been, much they’ve taught 

Ils se cachent dans nos rêves 

Et à la fin, ils nous lèvent.

Iyla Cheung is a Chinese-Canadian missionary kid (MK) who grew up in Niamey, Niger.
