Black-Uniform Lane by Liu Yuxi: THERE IS A MISTAKE IN THE TITLE OF THIS POEM. IT SHOULD BE Bamboo Branch Song. Same poet, though. And I swear I wasn’t drinking..

Leonard Durso

Willows are green, green and the river water flat.
I hear a man on the river singing me songs
and see sun on my east, rain on my west.
The sun is shying off, but I feel his shine.
