Li Ch'ing Chao
A Dream - Poem by Li Ch'ing Chao
To the melody of "Yü Jia Ao"
Where in the heavens that mingle billowy clouds and
mists of morn
On the River of Stars awhirl go a-flutter a thousand
Even as one in a dream home-coming to God's abode,
I heard Heaven speak,
Softly inquiring whither was I bound.
I answered: "Long is the way; Ay me, and the day fails:
And for all my love of Poesy scarce a stirring line have
O'er winds of myriad leagues the Roc into flight would
Winds, be not slowed
Till to the hills of Faëry my bark be borne!"
