When will I be home? I don't know. In the mountains, in the rainy night, the Autumn lake is flooded. Someday we will be back together again. We will sit in the candlelight by the West window and I will tell you how I remembered you tonight on the stormy mountain.

“When Will I Be Home?” by Li Shang Ying (quoted in The Dog Stars by Peter Heller)
