And even I can remember
A day when the historians left blanks in their writings,
I mean, for things they didn’t know,
But that time seems to be passing."
And Kung said, “Without character you will
be unable to play on that instrument
Or to execute the music fit for the Odes.
The blossoms of the apricot
blow from the east to the west,
And I have tried to keep them from falling.”
