Tz’u No. 2 (Wine Joy)

Tz’u No. 2 (Wine Joy)

To the tune “As in a Dream”

I have long remembered
The pavilion
On the stream
The falling sun
So deep in wine
We did not know
The way home
How pleasure spent
Late returning
The skiff
A lotus deep place
And struggling through
Struggling through
We scared up
From the sand
Gulls and herons.

Poem Tz’u No. 2 (Wine Joy) - Li Ching Chao
