SHEN WEI Each time you return from the m oon, you whisper to m e: “I’ve been only to the garden nea rby for a little whi le— a small insect there is dying . . .” Phantasy and fantasy— as if were the same and could b oth escape from this world. But you, being lig hter than a cloud, can wander fa r while I am imprisoned here even by the a ir, rooted in this world by fa te. Each time you come back in the night de w, you must have just arrived from the m oon. You don’t mention our withering flow ers or the foul win d. It’s late fall, and I see something in your e yes Making them bluer. Evening chill takes you by th e skirt. You already seem far away—but even when you are most di stant, when the moon and osmanthus trees will hav e died, the scent from your lips will stay. Translation by Ming Di
