Chinese love poems-A Jujiu Cooing
On th’islet yonder’mid running flows,
A jujiu’s calling, coo-coo, coo!
A graceful maiden comes’pon the shoal,
And her, a truthful youth does woo.
That water plant named “floating hearts”,
Here lush, there sparse, on trailing vines.
That graceful maiden who gathers them,
Both day and night e’er stays in his mind.
He woos, but cannot win her o’er,
In dreams and waking he despairs and sighs.
O longing thoughts, what longing thoughts!
He turns and tosses from side to side.
