Half of the river ...

Here's a short verse from the pictured 1983 edition of Bai Juyi's poetry; whose poems are now over a thousand years old:

Sunset over the River

A beam of the setting sun turns
half the river dark green and
the other half red; on the lovely
third night of the ninth moon ---
the pearly dew,
the bow-shaped moon.


Bai Juyi (772–846)
