献给毛(首字母为Q),七月的新娘;以及她的未婚夫(首字母为A)

Q & A

You’re a question and he’s the answer.

You unfurled to the mysterious world and he was there.

You pry its hulk with tenacious curiosity;

He stands constantly by your side, to respond, to inspire.

You’re a quamoclit and he’s the Acer.

He takes pride in his crimson crown and you your flower.

He casts a shade of passionate tenderness;

You spiral up briskly under his gaze, the higher, the higher.

Against the wind thy ship sets sail, you and him together;

The sea embraces thee with her temperamental splendour.

Thy vessel shall endure; thy voyage shall forever advance–

For you’re the quiescence following the storm and he’s the anchor.
