Tz'U No. 6 (Waiting For You) - Poem by Li Ching Chao

To the tune of "Red Lips"

Lonely in my secluded chamber,
A thousand sorrows fill every inch
of my sensitive being.

Regretting that spring has so soon passed,
That rain drops have hastened the falling followers,
I lean over the balustrade,
Weary and depressed.

Where is my beloved?

Only the fading grassland
stretches endlessly toward the horizon;
Anxiously I watch the road for your return.

    I think you missed your beloved by centuries....Loved it
    Only the fading grassland
    stretches endlessly toward the horizon;
    Anxiously I watch the road for your return.

    This is lovely and describes EXACTLY how I feel at this very moment, except for the fact that it isn't spring yet. Beautiful, evocative poem. (Report) Reply
