Stop Button Clutter!
My Servant Wakes Me
Bai Juyi (772-846), Chinese poet
translated by Arthur Waley (1889-1966), British scholar/poet

My servant wakes me: “Master, it is broad day.
Rise from bed; I bring you bowl and comb.
Winter comes and the morning air is chill;
To-day your Honor must not venture abroad.”
When I stay at home, no one comes to call;
What must I do with the long, idle hours?
Setting my chair where a faint sunshine falls
I have warmed wine and opened my poetry
books.
