Trees await the arrival of birds, sailboats await the arrival of sailors, war horses await the arrival of horsemen, cherries await the arrival of spring, children await the arrival of their mothers to breastfeed, today awaits the arrival of tomorrow… A poem in which the main melody is the rhythm of life.

Using parallel montage to weave countless moving moments of life to paint a majestic and complete picture of life, different images are like switching movie shots one by one. There is conception, birth, growth, and death; there is war and freedom; there is work and harvest; and there is a more fateful cycle.

A poem with the rhythm of life as the main theme opens up the life education of love.
