willow (for Lan)

beloved!   you are the willow
that hides the stars from the crickets
the crickets that sing in the grass

through the skies and dreams of autumn
move the clouds   like old men
all too drunk on rice wine

but the night wind dances
with the willow    with the willow
that hides the stars from the crickets
the crickets that sing in the grass
