鸭子在河里

There is a party tonight
A Tray of Togetherness is being passed around the table
While a child reaches to have a Pomelo section
Tangerines adorn the ancestors shrine as a happy couple chats nearby
Later they will enjoy Radish cake and wish each other good fortune
While slurping long noodles with the abundant whole fish
Late in the evening the children will bow and recite the familiar phrases
In return for a cache of hóngbāo
She smiles and thinks of days long past when it was she who would bow
He sits at home alone and remembers tales of ducks in the river
