A Fine How Do You Do


she tells me what to do
even while I am
or plan to
or think I am

by now, I should and would know
what I want to do,
if ever I sought advice
it is only her, I would seek

has she no faith,
I know what to do,
of course she has
but she knows better

how, what and when, to do
so when in need I'll ask,
if she stopped telling me
what to do,

I'd think she didn't care anymore,
stiil it's often annoying
being told what to do

    The 'she' persona here, whether she; s mother or spouse, seems to dominate, but then, isn't that how women are?

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
