A lost love

Language: English after the Chinese (中文)

Too late, alas! . . . . I came to find
  the lovely spring had fled.
Yet must I not regret the days
  of youth that now are dead;
For though the rosy buds of spring
  the cruel winds have laid,
Behold the clustering fruit that hangs
  beneath the leafy shade!
