    With thy mellow, breezy bass.

    when I sleep, I sleep;

    alone in a beautiful orchard,
    if my thoughts drift to far-off matters

  16. There's a garden where the peppers
    Were all growing on the vine,
    The tomatoes and the pumpkins
    And the string beans, very fine.

    In this garden where they grew;
    And the sunshine and the showers
    Came to nourish them, they knew.
    Each one praised the others' beauty,
    Praised their colors and their shapes,
    From the tiny, little onion
    To the luscious, purple grapes...
    Gertrude Tooley Buckingham

    Ou-Yang Hsiu

    Thy leaves I dedicate.
