for Lynn at adminclouds because she asked: Six Poems on Remembering: Poem 1 by Shen Yüeh

I think of when she comes–
shining, shining, up the garden stairs,
impatient, impatient to end our parting.
Tireless, tireless, we talk of love,
gaze at each other but never get our fill,
look at one another till hunger is forgotten.

translated by Burton Watson
