I held farewell parties with my friends in Lute Valley, Brought my zither and played on Parrot Shoals Who would guess I’d end up under a pine tree, Clasping my knees in the whispering cold? Untitled, #2 by Hanshan:  Untitled, #2 by Hanshan In the house east of here lives an old woman. Three or four years ago, she got rich.
