First Line: The work is heavy. I see
Last Line: Save of death the bright dancer?
Subject(s): Po Chu-yi (772-846)


The work is heavy. I see
bare branches laden with snow.
I try to comfort myself
with thought of your old age.
A girl passes, in a red tam,
the coat above her quick ankles
snow smeared from running and falling -
Of what shall I think now
save of death the bright dancer?
