Visiting Mr. Lu Hongjian in Vain
Although you had moved near the outer city wall,
Your path led me to a farm of mulberry and hemp.
Chrysanthemums were recently planted by the fence.
And no flowers had yet been blooming in the fall.
No dogs barked when I knocked at the door,
Before I left, I asked your neighbor about you.
He said you were in the mountain during the day,
And wouldn’t be home untile the sun set.
