Dear! Let be…

I have a head scarf
It is likely a little sun
I have a green belt
It is silky as the color of corn and rice

The sun gives me a fire
For never being cold
The belt rolls around my small waist
It is passionate even in a dream

Even crossing three passes and seven mountains
Even crossing nine streams and ten villages
Dear! Let be the scarf
Dear! Let be the belt.
