Autumn, Hearing The Headwaters On A Moonlit Night - Poem by Xue Tao

When that chilly hue strikes clear
the single strand of mist,
a muffled trill slides
far away:
ten silken strings.

It comes, long-drawn, to pillows.
It tugs at hearts and thoughts.

It will not let
at midnight
those who sorrow sleep.
