TO ONE UNNAMED II
A misty rain comes blowing with a wind from the east，
And wheels faintly thunder beyond Hibiscus Pool.
……Round the golden-toad lock， incense is creeping；
The jade tiger tells， on its cord， of water being drawn
A great lady once， from behind a screen， favoured a poor youth；
A fairy queen brought a bridal mat once for the ease of a prince and then vanished.
……Must human hearts blossom in spring， like all other flowers？
And of even this bright flame of love， shall there be only ashes？
