Song on Being Too Lazy to Get Up by Shao Yung

Half remembering, yet not remembering, just waked up from a dream;
almost sad, but not sad, a time when I’m feeling lazy,
I hug the covers, lie on my side, not wanting to get up yet–
beyond the blinds, falling petals fly by in tangled flurries.

translated by Burton Watson
