The autumn is going bankrupt，with even more vivid colours
And a palace is being salvaged from the body of the earth
I，though，like this spot，not identifiable on a map
The mountains standing all around．Now．I've reached the bottom of the hollow
The sky still，the clouds clean
The broken pagoda，at the head of the creek，should have been written into the county annals
And the big bluestone is where I can lie drunk and asleep---all that I like
The sunlight absent-minded，the green-headed ducks flying south sad，and the flagstone street idling and meandering
A tractor on the other side of the mountain is chugging away，complaining
They, too，are what I like
If you sing a number from a Peking Opera，wind me in with your long drawn-out tune and take me back to before my birth
Setting my soul astir with song
I shall like it all the more
