FOLLOWING the rhymes of Chiang Hui-shu:

Bell and drum on the south river bank:
home! I wake startled from a dream.
Drifting clouds – so the world shifts;
lone moon – such is the light of my mind.
Rain drenches down as from a tilted basin;
poems flow out like water spilled.
The two rivers vie to send me off;
beyond treetops I see the slant of a bridge.
