Untitled - Poem by Yao Sui
Sky's winds and sea's tides.
Men of the past have likewise been here.
Saints of wine, wizards of verse.
I climbed to gaze out.
Sun is far, heaven is high.
Mountains join water, vast and obscure.
Waters join sky, remote and mysterious.
Through with making a name for myself,
I laugh and chant verse;
Haven't waited for any old monk to invite me!
Things grow, things fall;
I lie on my bed at midnight.
All about me are puppets on stage;
Man's life, unreal; like a bubble.
Who in the mist of danger
Beneath my writing brush
Themes of wind and moon pass by.
Before my eyes
The number of my children increases and increases.
People ask me, "How goes it."
I tell them
The sea of men is vast;
Not a day without shifts
In life's winds and waves.
To the passionate Mr. Wang she sent a note:
"Tonight let's meet for love;
Be sure to be there."
She waited until the wife was asleep.
Softly she tapped outside his window.
