Tangshi V. 1. (167)

Du Xunhe
A Sigh in the Spring Palace

Knowing beauty my misfortune,
I face my mirror with a sigh.
To please a fastidious emperor,
How shall I array myself?....
Birds flock and sing when the wind is warm,
Flower-shadows climb when the sun is high –
And year after year girls in the south
Are picking hibiscus, dreaming of love!

Bynner 167
