Gong Xi Fa Cai!
It begins with a small step,
Moving against an entangled web.
On a journey to a thousand miles,
Filled with turbulence and trials.
Ploughing the hills with devote,
As we welcome the cashmere goat.
Furry and fuzzy with a fleece,
Mistaken to be slightly obese.
Attracting fortune piece by piece,
While they shout, “Gong Xi! Gong Xi!”
Welcoming the year of the sheep! Have a happy Chinese New Years 2015!
