“fallen flowers carried away by flowing water”
“be badly beaten，suffer a crushing defeat”。
The home team gave the guest team a good drubbing.
The enemy was utterly routed.
With flowers fallen on the waves spring's gone away, so has the paradise of yesterday.
TO THE FALLEN FLOWER（英文诗）
Your blossoms red and petals white fall with regret;
To part from mist-veiled mansions green you can't forget.
Before you reach the ground, you dance in wind with grace;
Fallen, you still reveal your half-hidden fair face.
The sea sheds pearly tears when sailors go ashore;
The beauty's remains smell sweet though she is no more.
You cannot leave your honey to the butterflies;
Confide your sweet heart to beehives before it dies!
