Description

This page shows two poems written by Chinese student Poon Kant Mok of the 1927 graduating class, "First Love" and "Crossing." The first poem, "First Love," is a brief romantic piece. The second poem, "Crossing," discusses homesickness, a long-distance relationship, and traveling overseas. The narrator begins the poem by "the sea of bitterness," and is traveling to the "yonder shore" that his love is on.
