D. 807 Worldly matters again draw my steps- Worldly things again seduce my heart. Whenever for long I part from Li Chien Gradually my thoughts grow narrow and covetous. I remember how once I used to visit you- I stopped my horse and tapped at the garden-gate. Often when I came you were still lying in bed- Your little children were sent to let me in. And you, laughing, ran to the front-door With coat-tails flying and cap all awry. On the swept terrace, green patterns of moss- On the dusted bench, clean shadows of leaves.
