I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

Yang Chi (1334-1383), Chinese poet.




 

 





FIVE-COLOR ROBE
Yang Chi

A five-color robe of embroidered silk:
many flowers, and a few sparse branches.

Spring is here, and I’m afraid to put it on:
the butterflies might all land on me!
