I can move a boulder,
but I cannot move a word,
as the sunset cannot be held,
when the dusk comes,
from sinking into the lake.
But I would gasp my admiration,
the true sentiments spitting out.
It blushed a sky,
and made some mountain ridge magnificent.
Without a trace, years have been gone by,
and I am getting old too.
In the deep desolations of tall reeds,
the August is actually getting a little lonely.
I can move myself,
but I can't move the shadow behind me.
And now, as I'm walking before the autumn,
and talking to each leaf,
it's farther than the wind,
and vaster than the poetry.
