Servant Wakes Me
Juyi (772-846), Chinese poet
by Arthur Waley (1889-1966), British scholar/poet
servant wakes me: “Master, it is broad day.
from bed; I bring you bowl and comb.
comes and the morning air is chill;
your Honor must not venture abroad.”
I stay at home, no one comes to call;

my chair where a faint sunshine falls
have warmed wine and opened my poetry books.
