Brief of Orioles Singing in the Willows

The poetic name is for a long and narrow lakeside park south of West Lake. A line of weeping willow trees are planted along the one-kilometer-long granite lakefront walk. That is one of the first places to notice that spring has arrived in Hangzhou. When vernal breezes stroke the willows, their leaves turn green and their branches sway gently, bending over to kiss the rippling water. All these seem like undulating “willow waves”, from which the singing of orioles can be heard. Many other birds do sing here, too, including those brought in cages by local senior citizens who enjoy coming early in the morning for a cup of tea with friends at Listening to Orioles Hall, which stands in the center of the park.
