East Stygia on two occasions has seen the dust fly,
And since a myriad years ago such interviews have been rare;
Now a hundred ports of wine, and the pear blossoms on a
     thousand trees,
Unite these lords in argument and drink -- but no one will discuss

Blue Lad transmits the word, reguiring them to come back: 
His reports tells that Miss Hemp's "jade stamens" have opened. 
The Watcher Sea has turned to dust -- all other affairs may be
They mount dragon and crane and come to observe the flowers. 

                         --Taoist Ts'ao Tang/9AD

A splendid royal robe of an imperishable aura seems to light on this
"poor fella" :-):  

The wind grows cool on Wedding Seas --aqueous images rise high:
An Exalted steward reguires the tailoring of a Red Frost Caftan.
Kraken silk and threads of jade are hard to cut to pattern;
They need to borrow golden knives and shears from the Jade Consort.  

--Ts'ao Tang



Paraphrased from "Mirages on the Sea of Time", the Taoist poetry of
