She looked back with a clear gaze
And her red lips spoke slow words
About the great net of our intermeshed lives:
"How sad that men's and spirits' ways must differ

ZOIDS 1. HAN XIZAI GIVES A NIGHT BANQUET

 

Thoughts in the Silent Night

By Li Bai

Beside my bed a pool of light
Is it hoarfrost on the ground?
I lift my eyes and see the moon,
I bend my head and think of home.

ZOIDS 2. DWELLING IN TH FUCHUN MOUNTAINS

 

Quatrain of Seven Steps

By Cao Zhi

People burn the beanstalk to boil beans,
The beans in the pot cry out.
We are born of the selfsame root,
Why should you torment me so much?

ZOIDS 3. NYMPH OF THE LUO RIVER

Nymph of the Luo River

By Cao Zhi

She looked back with a clear gaze
And her red lips spoke slow words
About the great net of our intermeshed lives:
"How sad that men's and spirits' ways must differ

.
Trailing her light skirt of misty silk
She surpassed the fragrant beauty of dark orchids
As she wandered on the hillside.
Then, quickly, happily, she roamed at her pleasure
Leaning on rainbows and shaded by flowers.
She plucked mystic plants at the torrent's edge.

ZOIDS 4. RIVERSIDE SCENE AT THEQUING MING FESTIVAL

On The Stork Tower


By Wang Zhihuan

The sun beyond the mountains glows;
The Yellow River seawards flows.
You can enjoy a grander sight?
By climbing to a greater height.

ZOIDS 5. SPRING MORNING IN THE HAN PALOACE

 

On The Mountain Holiday Thinking of My Brothers In Shandong

By Wang Weii

All alone in a foreign land,
I am twice as homesick on this day
When brothers carry dogwood up the mountain,
Each of them a branch and my branch missing.

ZOIDS 6. A THOUSAND LI OF RIVERS AND MOUNTAINS

 

Guan! Guan! Cry The Fish Hawks — from Shijing

 

A ragged fringe is the floating-heart,
left and right we sort it:
the mild-mannered good girl,
bell and drum delight her.
