As the spring wind blows
ripples smile
 
and as the spring wind blows
from a cave a snake emerges
 
and as the spring wind blows
the base-stone is loosened
 
and as the spring wind blows
incurred debts are repaid
new debts made
 
and as the spring wind blows
ghosts loiter
 
and as the spring wind blows
starlight moving away
from the world’s two green eyes.
