Rendezvous avec la mort (a poem)

A drowsy walk of pallid six afternoon hours
To lay red camellias by your head
I wait through the night
To listen to you listening to the chitchat of the blossom ocean tides

© Julie O’Yang. Text based on a poem by the Chinese symbolist poet Dai Wangshu (1905-1950), image found at a graveyard
