Dear Mrs. Wang,
> One of the poems in Little Paradise inspired me to write one of my own. I would like to send it to you because it was your book that inspired me. It is called Australia.
> Clouds that float a thousand feet
> Without a breath,
> Lake that stretches a hundred miles
> Without a twist,
> Stones that are smooth through all the year
> Without a dent,
> Knee-high grass, winter and summer
> Plains that forever stretch
> Without a pause,
> Dust that for twenty thousand years
> Your vows have kept
> You have suddenly healed the pain of a traveller’s heart,
> And moved his hand to write a new song.
> It was ispired by Sailing Homeward by Chan Feng Shen.
> Thank-you for your time.
