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.

大樹在等待著鳥兒,帆船在等待著水手,戰馬在等待著騎兵,櫻桃在等待著春天,孩子在等待著媽媽的哺乳,今天在等待著明天……一首以生命的律動為主旋律的詩歌。

不同的意象像一個個切換的電影鏡頭,用平行蒙太奇的方法將無數生命動人瞬間羅列織接描繪出一幅磅礴而完整的生命畫卷。有生命的孕育、誕生、成長和結束; 有理想和愛情;有戰爭和自由;有勞作與豐收;更有命運的迴圈往復。

用純美的詩歌開啟愛的生命教育,打造一首以生命的律動為主旋律的詩歌。
