    His best poem, in my opinion, is 'When She Was Still Alive', which is not listed on this website.

As Autumn Mountains

As autumn mountains
Tinged with scarlet were you, maiden,
A pliable bamboo,
Supply bending, lady,
Of what
Were you thinking?
A rope of hemp
Should stretch your life long;
The dew
