The Selkie's Song|The Opal Dream Cave



The first cup moistens my lips and throat.The second cup breaks my loneliness.The third cup searches my barren entrailbut to find therein some five thousandvolumes of odd ideographs.The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration, —All the wrongs of life pass away through mypores.At the fifth cup, I am purified.The sixth cup calls me to the realms ofImmortals.The seventh cup — ah, but Icould take no more! I only feelthe breath of cool wind that risesin my sleeves.Where is Elysium?Let me ride on this sweet breezeand waft away thither!— Tea-Drinking, by Lu Tung.

The first cup moistens my lips and throat.
The second cup breaks my loneliness.
The third cup searches my barren entrail
but to find therein some five thousand
volumes of odd ideographs.
The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration, —
All the wrongs of life pass away through my
pores.
At the fifth cup, I am purified.
The sixth cup calls me to the realms of
Immortals.
The seventh cup — ah, but I
could take no more! I only feel
the breath of cool wind that rises
in my sleeves.
Where is Elysium?
Let me ride on this sweet breeze
and waft away thither!
— Tea-Drinking, by Lu Tung.
