At Yungting Temple Pi-ch’iang Happily Arrives during the Night by Wei Ying-wu

Leonard Durso

You came with New Year’s greetings
walking here alone in the bitter cold
knocking on a bamboo temple gate at night
covered with snow from your hike through the hills
after starting a fire deep in my stove
and closing the door to my empty room
we shared a gourd full of wine
and didn’t speak of all the things that went wrong
