Three with the Moon and My Shadow


‘I am three with the moon and my shadow,’
Said old Li Po, traversing the countryside
With responsibilities close on his heels.
The moon and a shadow – company enough
For any traveller who hopes he has not
Yet seen all the world has to offer.

Who can know the pleasures of longing’s
Painful tendrils who has never departed,
Never been banished? Who can know
How the dew grows on bamboo in moonlight
Who lies abed with a blanket on his dreams?

Strolling, then, the stars their only streetlights,
A frail moon, a smiling poet and his
Spindly shadow, to where the night ends,
Arm in arm like any three friends
After a revel.
