On Kusu Terrace

The old gardens of Kusu Terrace
Are a wilderness, yet the willows
That remain still put out new branches;
Lasses gathering water chestnuts
Sing so loudly and with such
Clarity, that the feeling of spring
Returns to us; but where once stood
The palace of the King of Wu, now
Only the moon over the
West river once shone on
The lovely ladies there.
