Plucking the Rushes
A boy and a girl are sent to gather rushes for thatching
Green rushes with red shoots
Long leaves bending to the wind –
You and I in the same boat
Plucking rushes at the Five Lakes.
We started at dawn from the orchid-island:
We rested under elms till noon.
You and I plucking rushes
Had not plucked a handful when night came!
