This autumn scene’s worth words paint

This autumn scene’s worth words paint

this autumn scene’s worth words paint
red leaves fill up the mountain stream
the path through the pines is set just so
chrysanthemums glow gold around the eastern hedge
I raise this very proper goblet, drain the dregs
the commoner who offers you the cup’s
fit for high post, but what’s the use
get back
I’ll study T’ao Ch’ien, learn to be drunk
as he was.

by Kuan Han-Ch’ing
