Farewell By The River

The breeze blows the willow-scent in from

the dell,

While Phyllis with bumpers would fain

cheer us up;

Dear friends press around me to bid me


Goodbye ! and goodbye !. – and yet just

one more cup…..

I whisper, Thou’lt see this great stream

flow away

Ere I cease to love as I love thee today!

Li Po A.D. 705-762
