At duskI often climbTo the peak of Kugami.Deer bellowTheir voicesSoaked up byPiles of maple leavesLying undisturbed atThe foot of the mountain<br />Wild peoniesNow at their peakIn glorious full bloom:Too precious to pickTo precious not to pick<br />O lonely pine!I'd gladly give youMy straw hat andThatched coatTo ward off the rain<br /> ORCHIDDeep in the valley, a beauty hides:Serene, peerless, incomparably sweet.In the still shade of the bamboo thicketIt seem to sigh softly for a lover<br />
