DUTY AND WORK!


Sun rises and sets everyday;
Moon rises and sets everyday;
Plough man ploughs the field;
Poets love to compose poems!

Some love to do duty well;
But many do only for profit.
How duty has to be done?
What do duty, work mean?

Duty is done expecting none;
Work is done expecting some.
Duty and work all have to do;
But duty, works are different!

Duty is life work for everyone;
Work is done to live life here!

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,
