Twenty five Chinese poems - Autumn - The Pagoda
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From far away like heavy smoke they seem,
The naked willows down beside the stream.
The sense of evening, solemn, deep and
Falls earliest where the shadows touch the
The birds above go flocking home to nest,
And where the valley dips toward the west
Are thin-blown clouds, a fleece of airy gold.
Half-smothered up in tree-tops, black and
Half shrouded up in mist, and seven-tiers
The gaunt pagoda towers against the sky.
