The Sand by Wan Creek
Li, Qing-zhao (1081 A.D.-1154 A.D.?)
With a smile, I draw open the curtain embroidered with lotus flowers. I lean toward a treasure duck
supporting my cheek. My shy glance immediately inspires hopeful curiosity.
A face full of emotions possesses special charm. I express my most intimate feelings in a letter of yearning. When the moonlight moves shadows of blossoms, I invite you to come again.
This poem describes how Li feels in her boudoir.
"Treasure duck" refers to the shape of an incense burner.
