cbwc: weather

In the attitude, and with the manner, of the woman of old,

Full of grief, she stands in the glorious morning light.

The dew is like the tears of to-day;

The mosses like the garments of years ago.

Her resentment is that of the Woman of the Hsiang River;

Her silence that of the concubine of the King of Ch’u.

Still and solitary in the sweet-scented mist,

As if waiting for her husband’s return. ~ Li Tai-po*
