Alternate Author Name(s): Chuo Wen-chen
Subject(s): China - Middle Ages (600 B.c.- 618 A.d.); Love

OUR love was pure
As the snow on the mountains:
White as a moon
Between the clouds --
They're telling me
Your thoughts are double:
That's why I've come
To break it off.
To-day we'll drink
A cup of wine.
To-morrow we'll part
Beside the Canal:
Walking about,
Beside the Canal,
Where its branches divide
East and west.
Alas and alas,
And again alas.
So must a girl
Cry when she's married,
If she find not a man
Of single heart,
Who will not leave her
Till her hair is white.
