Distant Melody

Distant Melody

A  song  the  wind  brought

In  the  winter  evening

From  the  distance ,

through  the  paddy  fields

Brown  with  stubbles

Where  the  cattle  grazing ,

Calves  sucking  mothers’ milk ,

Egrets  flying  above

And  landing

To  me  while  resting  a  while

Weary  of  the  journey

At  the solitude

Of  that  riverbank

Looking  at  the  stream

Of  the  river flowing slowly

Down  its  winding  course .

Oh!  Singer,

Do  you  know

The  beauty  of  your  song

As  I listened  then ?
