The Cold Clear Spring At Nanyang

The Cold Clear Spring At Nanyang

A pity it is evening, yet
I do love the water of this spring
Seeing how clear it is, how clean;
Rays of sunset gleam on it,
Lighting up its ripples, making it
One with those who travel
The roads; I turn and face
The moon; sing it a song, then
Listen to the sound of the wind
Amongst the pines.
