In a few scenes, through nineteen poems very well-known to children in Taiwan, the poet Yang Huan, who died at the age of 23, offers an exquisite mix of the familiar – lives of school children – and the extraordinary –the awakening of nature in a tropical country.
Poems rich in imagery.
We are a troop of little courageous workers,
But the Frérot’s story book is too heavy to move,
The Soeurette’s ball of wool is too long to pull,
We come to lift the cake crumbs that Soeurette has left.
For us, when it rains,
The mushroom is the most beautiful of umbrellas;
To cross the river,
The petal is the most reassuring of barques.
