Shenzhen  Stuff

On the day when the lotus bloomed, alas, my mind was straying, and I knew it not. My basket was empty and the flower remained unheeded. 

Only now and again a sadness fell upon me, and I started up from my dream and felt a sweet trace of a strange fragrance in the south wind. 

That vague sweetness made my heart ache with longing and it seemed to me that is was the eager breath of the summer seeking for its completion. 

I knew not then that it was so near, that it was mine, and that this perfect sweetness has blossomed in the depth of my own heart. 

I must launch out my boat. The languid hours pass by on the shore-Alas for me!

The spring has done its flowering ad taken leave. And now with the burden of faded futile flowers I wait and linger. 

The waves have become clamorous, and upon the bank in the shady lane the yellow leaves flutter and fall. 

What emptiness do you gaze upon! Do you not feel a thrill passing through the air with the notes of the faraway song floating from the other shore.
