Beautiful Woman

Unmatched in beauty is this woman
secluded she resides in an empty valley
she herself says she's of a good family
withered and fallen like grass and trees
in a mountain pass in past turmoil
her elder and younger brother had been murdered
though high officials not enough regard
she wasn't even allowed to collect their bodies
public opinion is malicious about failure
everything ends like a used-up candle
her husband a frivolous man
always after another one beautiful like jade

Furling at dusk - worship knowledge time
not only mandarin ducks stay overnight
her husband merely sees someone new smiling
while he hears the old one weeping
in the mountains springwater is pure
coming out it turns muddy
she awaits her maid's return from selling pearls
she pulls vines to mend her thatched cottage
she picks flowers not for her hair or husband
she peels off useful bark holding it with both hands
Heaven's indifferent, meagreness into her green sleeve
Day curtain - she leans against wall-like bamboo
