This poet of the Tsong dynasty is so miserable.Written by Billy Collins
The wind sighs, a single swan passes over head
and he is alone on the water in his skiff.
If only he appreciated life in eleventh century China as much as I do.
No loud cartoons on television,
No music from the ice cream truck.
Just the calls of many birds and the steady flow of the water clock
Animated by Eun-ha Paek of Milky Elephant.
