In this last edition of the semester, the writers at FCU English Online would like to share their wishes for a happy and healthy new year ... and they would like to share some of their Christmas/New Year cinquains - poems written in five lines.


Jody Tu and Anna Chung


New Year
Exciting, renewing
Recalling, planning, executing
It means an unknown future.
Start
  



Red Envelope
Lucky, exciting
Receiving, opening, shopping
It is a Chinese tradition.
Money
  



Fireworks
Temporary, beautiful
Expecting, booming, cheering
Fireworks are a gift.
Surprise
 



New Year’s Eve Dinner
Delicious, abundant
Eating, talking, playing
It brings family together.
Reunion
 




Victor Chen


Calendar
White, red
Waiting, expecting, coming
Laughs are everywhere.
New Year
    



Christmas
Fat, old
Shaking, laughing, smiling
Kids love him.
Santa Claus
   




Mary Yu


Concert
Crazy, dazzling
Exciting, moving, singing
Put your hands up.
Performance
  



New Year’s Eve
Cold, wet
Trembling, freezing, cooling
Warm up!
Evening
    




Jeffery Chen


Red Envelope
Exciting, lovely
Taking, counting, collecting
You deserve it.
Money
    



North Korea
Unbelievable, horrible
Controlling, monitoring, fooling
Believe it.
My Lord!
    




Christina Hong


Christmas
Red, romantic
Exciting, gathering, touching
It’s a happy holiday.
Santa
    



New Year
Crowded, noisy
Fireworks displaying, evening party, screaming
It’s a new beginning.
New Life
    




Victor Peng


Chinese New Year’s Eve
Red, happy
Gathering together, having dinner, celebrating
Happy Chinese New Year!

Winter Break
Lazy, sleepy
Traveling around, eating everything, having fun
There’s nothing I have to do.
Vacation
   




Ray Yeh


Shopping mall
Crazy, crowded
Walking, hunting, waiting
I can’t stop buying.

Complicated, hard
Thinking, planning, doing
It is a big challenge.

Hotpot
Delicious, full
Eating, warming, sweating
The hotpot is especially tasty.

Present
Mysterious, precious
Exciting, imagining, surprising
The present is from my parents.
