Poems of Meng Jiao
Through Peng Marsh
Sails lift on Peng Marsh.
Boatmen sigh in admiration.
The planters of these willows are gone.
Hard times, then empty desolation.
Peng was an ancient kingdom and an enemy of the Shang Dynasty. That's about all we know about it. The willows it planted must have endured. How beautiful is a two-thousand year old willow?
