Tangshi V. 1. (166)

Cui Tu
A Solitary Wildgoose

Line after line has flown back over the border.
Where are you headed all by yourself?
In the evening rain you call to them –
And slowly you alight on an icy pond.
The low wet clouds move faster than you
Along the wall toward the cold moon.
...If they caught you in a net or with a shot,
Would it be worse than flying alone?

Bynner 166
