The Poet Smiles
Outside the west wind is humming, its branches tap at my window as by candlelight the poems of Su Tung P'o rest lightly upon my soul. In the chair beside me a silhouette reclines, engaged in the solving of needlepoint puzzles. Her hair turns towards me. Silently my book closes, my wife's robe opens. Su Tung smiles.
Su Tung P'o (1036-1101) is generally considered one of China's greatest poets; certainly one of my favorites.
