Sample text

Normally I hate going ou t The more so in a steaming swelter . I still love The deep night, The creek racing past the step s Into White Lotus Pond . Disincline d To slip a short smock on , How can I drag long skirts around ? The pine wind scoffs At the present of a fan . And a stone wall's bette r Than imperial ice . Only this poverty And nothing to do , Constant melancholy Not easy to better . Farewell to the Reverend Wu Yun g Returning to the Chung-Ciao Mountains Farewell to the Reverend Huai K u Going Roaming around Hangcho u Lofty and fa r A temple in the Chung-Ciao Range .

Midnight, heart startled , I rise , to take the path to Long Cascade : grove's trees swallowed in white dew, a dipper of stars, in the clear dark sky .
