Throw on rouge and powder, watch the governor pass!
In threes and fives by thorn hedge gates,
they push and trample each other's red silk skirts.

Lead the old, bring the children! Like a harvest festival,
crows and hawks wheeling above the village shrine –
at dusk I met an old man lying drunk beside the road.
