Clouds over the Catalinas (1 of 1)-Edit-art blogSanta Catalina Mountains — Photo-Artistry by kenne

TO THE TUNE ‘A FLOATING CLOUD CROSSES
ENCHANTED MOUNTAIN’

Every morning I get up
Beautiful as the Goddess
Of love ib Enchanted Mountain.
Every night I go to bed
seductive as Yang Kuei-fei,
The imperial concubine.
My slender waist and thighs
Are exhausted and weak
From a night of cloud dancing.
But my eyes are still lewd,
And my cheeks are flushed.
My old wet nurse combs
My cloud-like hair.
My lover, fragrant as incense,
Adjusts my jade hairpins, and
Draws on my silk stockings
Over my feet and legs
Perfumed with orchids;
And once again we fall over
Overwhelmed with passion.

— Huang Ho
