Tune: Auspicious Crane-riding Immortal
Reminiscences of Peacock Princess
By William He
On a wild secluded scene just now.
Fluffing out her feathers,
River plays on her heart the rhythm of waves.
The pale purple melts around her flight.
By the border of the lake,
Who is soaked with Amrita in a banana forest.
Leaves of the waterlily float.
Her perplexity and choice,
Shadow with long and vain regret then.
She sees at central things we cannot espy，
Those lost to hope, in memory yet,
Unfolding an Audrey hepburn tale.
No fantasy speaks to strength of her grace,
Her flounce florescent tails are,
Mascots for the folks in thrall.
The secrets that flow in blood.
All the noble whims of ink,
Enchanting Toungoo heart.
Dazzling malachite green,
Lxora coccinea showing its splendor,
Never has she felt so deeply at one.
With half-formed speech of art.
Passion has worn the wandering heart.
