Chen Tziang - The Last Revel
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From A Lute of Jade – Being selections from the Classical poets of China [The Wisdom of the East series] edited and translated by L. Cranmer-Byng and Dr S. Kapadia 
From silver lamps a thin blue smoke is streaming,
And golden vases 'mid the feast are gleaming;
Now sound the lutes in unison,
Within the gates our lives are one.
'We'll think not of the parting ways
As long as dawn delays.
When in tall trees the dying moonbeams quiver :
When floods of fire efface the Silver River,
Then comes the hour when I must seek
Lo-Yang beyond the furthest Peak.
But the warm twilight round us twain
Will never rise again.
