I dedicated myself to finish it... Finally. I'm not sure if the last line counts, though - it doesn't quite strictly rhyme...

Spring - a sonnet.

The air was e'er cold, warmth unfree;
From the sky a frozen wind blew.
Yet I knew that soon would be
When the final frost would accrue.
Life was springing anew even as I walked;
The frozen ground began to melt.
Plants and animals around me stalked,
And warmth and life again dwelt.
Flowers and green foliage sprung forth;
Animals of all kinds from winter sleep awoke.
Ended was the cold reign from the North,
I knew, as green grass beneath me kindly stroked
My bare feet - I, free from the grip of Winter,
Was settled in the soft arms of Spring, limber.

Summer - a haiku.

Warm sunlight blazing,
Down on our contented heads -
Lively, bright summer.

It's seasons time!

Winter - a nonet.

A frozen wind blew across the land;
Snow blanketed the barren ground.
Ice covered the sea surround.
Bundling up in layers,
Offering prayers,
The people wished
Well-being;
Thriving,
Still.

Spring - a sonnet.

The air was e'er cold, warmth unfree;
From the sky a frozen wind blew.
Yet I knew that soon would be
When the final frost would accrue.
Life was springing anew even as I walked;
The frozen ground began to melt.
Plants and animals around me stalked,
And warmth and life again dwelt.
Flowers and green foliage sprung forth;
Animals of all kinds from winter sleep awoke.
Ended was the cold reign from the North,
I knew, as green grass beneath me kindly stroked
My bare feet - I, free from the grip of Winter,
Was settled in the soft arms of Spring, limber.

Summer - a haiku.

Warm sunlight blazing,
Down on our contented heads -
Lively, bright summer.

Autumn - a tanka. (As requested by Tacky.)

Crisp colorful leaves,
Falling slowly from above;
Trees wary of cold,
Of the coming Winter days.
Autumn ablaze with color.
*

*Alt ending: 'Autumn is really awesome' (as Tacky requested...)

... There it is.

Jeol, what is a parnassian??

A poet, in French, I think.

Yay, someone posted on my thread...

I just realized how long it's been since a title change. *ponders a title change*

I know this isn't really relevant, but...

I think Tumblr hates me.

It keeps giving me security warnings. I've reset the password at least thrice now to ones that I've never used before, and it still gives me the same message.

In other words, if I got a dollar for every security warning Tumblr gave me, right now I would be rich.

I even went so far as to delete the account and start over, but when I tried to customize the theme, it started giving me warnings again. Is there any way to avoid this, does anybody know? Does it not like it if people customize the themes anymore?

Humm, the problem seems to have corrected itself. Sadly, since I deleted my account and reactivated it, that means I have to recreate it from scratch... Thankfully, I left a window open which contains all my previous posts. The bigger problem is recreating the theme... I pretty much have to do it all again from scratch, though I do still have some of the images and stuff that I used, except for a few of the colors... But, even then, should be easy enough to at least get close.

I just returned from a two-week trip to China on Tuesday. What a trip! What a fall.

Baha. I love puns. Sorry.

I suppose some people want to see pictures. Here is an Arctic sunset from the airplane... A two-hour sunset. The best kind.

http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/3828/dscn0577cy.jpg

The flight was long (that particular one took thirteen hours), and not much sleep was caught on the way. But hey! Nothing like going on your first plane ride... Or going out of the country for the first time... Or going overseas for the first time...

Next, a photo taken from the place I was staying (with a host family). Chengdu is primarily known as the Green City of China (ironically enough, it was the smoggiest city while we were there). (It's also a very laid-back city, but that's irrelevant.) Because of this, they have a lot of trees and plants in the city. One thing that fascinated me was the amount of tree farms outside the city - once a tree was fully grown, they would transplant the tree to whether it was wanted. This is how most of the city came up, I suppose. This next picture is of a complex that was only built a few years prior. (On a sidenote, they are surprisingly nice - Iduno what to call them, apartments? Especially on the inside.)

While we were there, we got to spend a bit of time with the students of the international school we were singing with... Gah. I miss them so :')

I refrained from making as many cheesy pictures as possible and saved only for the more artistic approaches... Now I regret. But here is a more artistic approach I made.

Also, while we were in Chengdu, we went to a panda reserve. 'Nuff said.

"Can leap over tall buildings in a single bound..."

They also had red pandas there, but of course they separated them from the white pandas. Racist much? ~ Haha, yeah, but seriously.

One of the many hilariously mistranslated signs around China. ("Beware of Slippery", etc.)

I'll skip a few days (mostly because I didn't take many pictures inbetween then) to the last days in China, climbing the Great Wall. It was an excruciating climb (tired from busy days), but it was definitely worth it.

http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/1617/dscn0625b.jpg

To better show the steepness of the climb...

http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/9260/dscn0641b.jpg

Well, that's all I have for now. I'll probably post a picture of me on the Great Wall in the official PoAG thread and leave it at that, unless you guys want more pictures, in which case I'll leech off of other people's photos, or if you want me to explain more about the trip.

Revive.

MegaIPOD were talking on another forum, and some things led to another and we were talking about Carlie. I ended up writing a rap about her, even though I never really met her :P I'm pretty sure it's horrible, but hey, it's a start. I wrote it so that all of the italics are the downbeats.

Carlie

She was the definition of awesome.
She made the TERM awesome awesome.
She was the first awesome part of AG -
Aside from AG itself,
But AG was too hip to be awesome.
In fact, both she and AG
Are both high in definition.

I also wrote a haiku for the heck of it. It's on a pretty cliche topic ("Battle"), but whatevs.

The victory cry,
Last plunge of the lethal sword;
The conq'ring of us.
