Su Tung-po

(1037 - 1101 / China)

Pu suan tzu


A fragment moon hangs from the bare tung tree
The water clock runs out, all is still
Who sees the dim figure come and go alone
Misty, indistinct, the shadow of a lone wild goose?

Startled, she gets up, looks back
With longing no one sees
And will not settle on any of the cold branches
Along the chill and lonely beach

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
