Lit dew shimmers down maiden hair tumbles,
dragon scales hold poems in sunlight stems,
magpie songs clatter over scrawled names.
On a whim, cranes followed to jade peaks.
Lone magpie call sirens from ancient branches
cranes soar to jade peaks on the north wind.
Scribbled poems clustered on dragon scales,
golden maiden hair tumbles over slippery crags.
Crane formations fly north to jade peaks
over a thousand layers of magpie song.
Golden maiden hair tumbles under cloud white ridges
dragon scales line forest depths awaiting scrawled poems.
Poems line by line on dragon scales, lit dew
shimmers on tumbles of golden maiden hair.
Magpie calls rattle through cloud hollow caves
singing winds lead cranes north to jade peaks.
