On Being Stricken With Paralysis - Poem by Po Chu-I
Why waste your time in wailing
And in sympathy for me?
Surely, from time to time,
I shall be strong enough
To move about a bit
As for travel,
On land there are carrying-chairs,
And on the water there are boats;
So, if I can but keep my courage,
What need have I of feet ?
