Tune: “Immortal at the River”
I still remember drinking on the
Bridge of Noon
With bright wits of the day.
The silent moon
On endless river rolled away.
In shadows sparse of apricot flowers
We played our flutes till morning hours.
O’er twenty years have passed like dreams,
It is a wonder that I’m still alive.
Carefree, I mount the tower bathed in
Moonbeams. So many things passed long
Ago survive only in fishermen’s midnight song.
