I was born in the south of China, which has a lot of rivers and lakes. There were so many opportunities to learn swimming, but I really didn’t know how to swim at all. However, I haven't been afraid of water since I was a child.
After I went to college, there was a swimming lesson each week. But a drowning accident broke the plan, and then the swimming class was canceled. I still didn’t know how to swim after I graduated.
This is a traditional Chinese poem written by the famous Chinese poet “郁达夫” on February 12th, 1919, while living in Japan.
It’s a poem about snow, and I am going to translate it into English now.
