Treasure Island

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

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
