Tangshi VIII. 1. (278)

Gu Kuang
A Palace Poem

High above, from a jade chamber, songs float half-way to heaven,
The palace-girls' gay voices are mingled with the wind –
But now they are still, and you hear a water-clock drip in the Court of the Moon....
They have opened the curtain wide, they are facing the River of Stars.

Bynner 278
