OF Spring water, -- thirty or forty miles:
In the evening sunlight, -- three or four houses.
Youths and boys minding geese and ducks:
Women and girls tending mulberries and hemp.
The place, -- remote: their coats and scarves old:
The year, -- fruitful: their talk and laughter gay.
The old wanderer moors his flat boat
And staggers up the bank to pluck wistaria flowers.
