Gloriously Drunk!
        Jigong 1130-1209

Proud to be drunk
        wind tumbled soldier
                no stopping,
On top of my cane
        bright moon
                covers Nanzhou.
Twirling around
        hoofing it
                for no good reason,
Tromping powder snow
        willow catkins fly
                twelve stories high!
