SHENKUU LUNAR FESTIVAL SPECIAL
Run, Orrin, run after the Snorkles,
Shenkuu's Lunar Festival is near.
A time of celebrating, of great fun,
Of both good friends and good cheer.
Pick up pineapple and oranges, Orrin,
We cannot begin without our food.
Steamed Round Dumplings, Golden Tangerines,
If we have nothing to serve, that'd be rude!
Find and ready the firecrackers, Orrin,
Save them for last, to illuminate the night.
When it's time, ignite them and stand back
And watch the fountains of vivid, flashing light.
Orrin, don't worry, Anshu the old Ruki will help,
In case you trip over a Juma or a Pandaphant.
He'll take care of things we don't need tonight,
So in your quests you will be triumphant.
Orrin, the ornamental garden isn't too big,
You won't get lost, but I'm sure you know that.
Don't tarry, but don't hurry either,
Lest you drop something with a thud or splat!
The Lunar Festival has begun, Orrin,
Now you can sit back and enjoy everything.
All your hard work putting it all together,
For your troubles, you deserve something!
Seven Little Dumplings
Round like the moon, soft like cotton,
Smoother than the finest silk.
Seven little dumplings, shiny as a button,
White as the creamiest milk.
Sitting on the plate, seven little dumplings,
While firecrackers crack above.
Bright happy lights outline the dwellings,
As pleasant as red foxglove.
The Lunar New Year comes today,
Celebrations ring in the Shenkuu air.
Evil is chased far away,
With much merriment and flair.
Let the hungry come and eat,
The moon smiles upon arrays of food.
Come, good friends, take your seat,
Enjoy the fare roasted and stewed.
Seven little dumplings, lined on a plate,
One and two are gone with haste.
And while the others wonder about their fate,
They disappear as well.
My Shenkuu Valentines
Next to the mountains, close to the sea,
A land of mystery you will see.
From tofu to dumplings, or rice to tea,
Everything is just so new to me!
Banners in red, buildings in mist,
Excitement easily fills my chest.
The place is simply beyond list,
As it is such a wonderful place for rest.
Everywhere in red, redder than ever,
Everyone is in a Lunar New Year/Valentine's fever.
The coincidence is as rare as never,
That the celebration makes the air quiver.
Bang and bang, firecrackers everywhere.
Smiles and joys, here and there.
The atmosphere is just so dear,
That none would think it is too loud to hear.
In front of me is a bard,
Gifting everyone a mysterious festival card.
Joyful poem he is chanting so hard,
With rhymes he will his listeners bombard.
This is just a too wonderful place,
As everyone falls into the festival pace.
The energy here makes everyone amazed,
And I would never forget this memory of blaze.
Firecrackers Over Hearts
What is happening here?
Roses for her?
Why do you care?
It's only the same old sappy 'stuff'...
Firecrackers setting off,
Lanterns bobbing in the sky,
Dancing the traditional way,
Exotic land is the place
To celebrate the firecrackers.
Shenkuu Princess over the temple,
Standing tall and high above all.
Lunara in the lunar sky,
Firecrackers will fly,
The sparks will dance over the land.
Let us celebrate with dance and fire
The coming of the Lunar Year,
The newest year,
Because chocolates are not as important
As the party dancing in the Shenkuu temples.
A city that looms in the sky,
With shrouded peaks and flying ships.
A merchant town, we all must say,
With goods like lotus leaves and turnips.
Fanciful Fauna where Petpets roam,
Wondrous Weaponry where arms are sold.
The Cyodrake's Gaze with its crew,
Along with Captain Tuan, a legend is told.
Medical items in the Remarkable Restoratives,
Culinary Concoctions, it's delicious!
And in the Lunar Temple lives a Gnorbu
Who gives out prizes, he's so generous!
Shenkuu is a place for everyone,
It's an exotic Neopian land.
With Altador as its neighbour,
And it is time to say, 'The End'.
