Poetry Collection by His Majesty, Third Collection

Poem on Tea Blossoms by His Majesty 

Though it’s spring when the flagged spears
have extended their leaves,
Only with the ice and snow of autumn do 
their buds burst forth in bloom.
How very shameful, the east wind for
it pays them absolutely no heed,
And the human world only knows
how to judge their tender leaves.
