Tz’u No. 4

To the tune of “Like a Dream”

Last night a sprinkling of rain,
A violent wind.

After a deep sleep, still not recovered
From the lingering effect of wine,
I inquired of the one rolling up the screen;
But the answer came: “The cherry-apple blossoms
Are still the same.”

“Oh, don’t you know, don’t you know?
The red must be getting thin,
While the green is becoming plump.”
