- Book Intro
It is pretty when observed closely.
It is lovely when observed for a long while.
You are, too.
- Flower 1 by Na Tae-joo
If I find out your name, we'll be neighbors.
If I find out your color, we'll be friends.
If I find out your shape, we'll be lovers.
Ah, this is a secret.
- Flower 2 by Na Tae-joo
Don't be discouraged.
Help a flower bloom.
It is wonderful.
