Water Green Lakeside Naxi Village Guan Yin Xia, Lijiang Yunnan, China
For a Friend -Du Fu-
North and south of my cottage winds spring water green;
I see but flocks of gulls coming from day to day.
The footpath strewn with fallen blooms is not swept clean;
My wicket gate is opened but for you today.
Far from the market, I can afford but simple dish;
Being not rich, I’ve only old wine for our cup.
To drink with my neighbor if you wish,
I’ll call him over the fence to finish the cup.
