The guest has left my tower high,
My garden flowers pell-mell fly.
Here and there over the winding way
They say goodbye to parting day.
I won’t sweep them with broken heart,
But wish they would not fall apart.
Their love with spring won’t disappear,
Each dewdrop turns into a tear.
The poet describes his gloomy mood on seeing the falling flowers.
“Falling Flowers” is a poem written by Li Shangyin, a poet of the Tang Dynasty. The poem expresses the poet’s poignancy and emotion of not seeing the world through the falling of flowers and leaves. The poem is full of feelings of sadness and regret for flowers in spring.
