Fun Fact: Kong Que translates to Peacock, so yes Kong Que can also be called Military Counselor Peacock, but I’ve chosen to keep his name because it sounds a bit weird seeing how he doesn’t look like a peacock lol.

Pear Tree

Silver dust lifted from the earth, higher than my arms reach, you have mounted.

O silver, higher than my arms reach you front us with great mass; no flower ever opened so staunch a white leaf, no flower ever parted silver from such rare silver;

O white pear, your flower-tufts, thick on the branch, bring summer and ripe fruits in their purple hearts.

-Hilda Doolittle (1886 – 1961)
