Down By The Lakeside


I observe faint tides roll in
Down by the lakeside
Spate signs flowing
Listen to the grapevine
Everything is like gold
Glimmering lights and pacifism ninefold
Down by the lakeside where the cherub does sleep
Acknowledge it's prominence and what good it does me
Finally
I was free and promised not to go back
Like a lone white dove that escaped from a cat
Down by the lakeside where the Florences grow
Peace-loving omnipresence with a radiant glow
Visualize the sunset
What's next?
Hate to go?
Wait! I'm not done yet
Come let's take a stroll
Moonlit aqua pura pass promptly and swift
The impending waterfall causes current to shift
Only wading through the water caused a burden to lift
Oh the treasured lakeside
It's the earnest of gifts
Come and take a whiff of the peach filled breeze
Be sure to stand clear of the leech filled trees
Down by the lakeside on the outskirt of heaven
Where the archangels breed and everything is grouped in seven

poet Tu Fu

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,
