Visit Shinobazu Pond, Sent to Elder Brother Zhong
        Su Manshu 1884-1918

Wonderfully white 
        thin light gauze 
                how many layers?
Her savage kimono
        glows in the sunlight.
By the stone balustrade
        of the bridge
                east of the lake,
This exotic beauty
        excells at penetrating
                a traveler's heart.
Laughs, points 
        at the lotus blossom
                lonely and red.

Bái miào qing` luó bāo jǐ zhòng,
Rìrén rénchēng lǐyī yīxiù rì miào.
Shílán qiāopàn xiǎo chī dōng,
Hújī shàn jiě lí rényì,
Xiào zhǐ fúróng jìmò hóng.
