My seasons full of
Tears and songs, when
departing on my phoenix
Moonlight covers the galaxy
The automne wind rises
bringing fresh joy
Free from the clouds
I run to the moon
- Romantic legend of the cowherd (牛郎）and the weaving girl (织女). They are both gods in the sky, and they can be seen as two stars. The weaving girl is a granddaughter of the celestial keen. After she met with the cowherd, she stopped to weave clothes made of clouds for the keen. The keen separated the couple with galaxy, allowing them reunion only on the seventh day of the seventh month each year, according to Chinese agricultural calendar.
This day is still celebrated today among other traditional holidays.
- Both songs seem to be written by a woman who might be expressing her own sorrows and joys through the legend of the weaving girl.
The bambu flute is only an instrument
borrowed by the sounds so pure so light
From where comes the charm of a song?
Voice and intensity guided by the heart
Arriving at the viewpoint,
The river quietly runs below
Pure and cool.
Perfuming as the orchid
At the waterfront
In the sky,
A golden swan is flying high
My bow is ready
Oh let me reach this bird
Let me live till eternalty
Oh the highest ! I wish you know my feelings,
And my love will last forever.
For me to part from you,
The mountains must become plains,
The river must dry out,
The thunder must strike in the middle of winter,
The snow must fall in summer,
The sky and the planet must become one.
