Occasional Poem 7 of 10
        Su Manshu 1884-1918

Lazily made-up
        she sits playing the koto
                in the tower,
Too shy to make a show
        for others.
All day the geisha quarters
        busy non-stop,
Everywhere song and dance
        only she is idle.
 
Bénshi Shī Shíshōu (Qī)
Sū Mànshū 1884-1918

Yōng zhuāng gāogé wū zhēng zuò,
Xiū wèi tārén gōng xiào....
Zhènrì huān chǎng máng bùliǎo,
Wàn jiā gēwǔ yī xián shēn.
