Shuyen Song Of The Wave

  1. 1. Song of the wave Shuyan Qiu Peizhen Liu
  2. 2. The strong shore is my beloved and I am his sweetheart.
  3. 3. We are at last united by love, and then the moon draws me from him. I go to him in haste and depart reluctantly, with many little farewells.
  4. 4. <ul><li>I steal swiftly from behind the </li></ul><ul><li>blue horizon to cast the silver of </li></ul><ul><li>my foam upon the gold of his sand, and </li></ul><ul><li>we blend in melted brilliance. </li></ul>
  5. 5. I quench his thirst and submerge his heart; he softens my voice and subdues my temper. At dawn I recite the rules of love upon his ears, and he embraces me longingly.
  6. 6. <ul><li>At eventide I sing to him the song of </li></ul><ul><li>Hope, and then print smooth hisses upon </li></ul><ul><li>his face; I am swift and fearful, but he </li></ul><ul><li>is quiet, patient, and thoughtful. His </li></ul><ul><li>broad bosom soothes my restlessness. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>As the tide comes we caress each other, </li></ul><ul><li>when it withdraws, I drop to his feet in Prayer. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Many times I have danced around mermaids </li></ul><ul><li>as they rose from the depths and rested </li></ul><ul><li>upon my crest to watch the </li></ul><ul><li>stars; many times I have heard </li></ul><ul><li>lovers complain of their </li></ul><ul><li>smallness, and I helped them </li></ul><ul><li>to sigh. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Many times I have teased the great rocks and fondled them with a smile, but I have never received laughter from them; many times I have lifted drowning souls and carried them tenderly to my beloved shore. He gives them strength as he takes mine.
  10. 10. Many times I have stolen gems from the depths and presented them to my beloved shore. He takes them in silence, but I still give fro he welcomes me ever.
  11. 11. In the heaviness of night, when all creatures seek the ghost of slumber, I sit up, singing at one time and sighing at another. I am always awake.
  12. 12. Alas! Sleeplessness has weakened me! But I am a lover, and the truth of love is strong. I may be weary, but I shall never die.
