Elegy for Another’s Wife

Translated by: 
Justin Hill

The peach’s complexion

her tender cheeks


wind-blown willow

her delicate brows


into the dragon’s cave

the pearl has fallen


waiting for her reflection

the phoenix stand mirror


Our dreams drip

through cold wet nights


no one wants to listen

these hours of loss


sunset behind the western mountains

moonrise above the east


forever breaking through

our memories of her
