Given in Farewell - Du Mu

So slender, so supple,
      little more than thirteen,
A nutmeg bud on a twig tip,
      when March begins.
On the three miles of Yang-chou road
      with a spring breeze blowing,
As they draw up their bead blinds,
      she is lovelier than all.

Du Mu (803 - 852) China
