Flower Nymphs


One day, as Huang was returning thence, he espied the young lady of the red clothes also wiping away her tears alongside the hole and he joined with her in her lamentations.

For some days Chiang-hsueh, (half-sister of Hsiang-yu) did not appear; and Huang remained in a state of great melancholy, tossing and turning on his bed and wetting the pillow with his tears, until one night he got up, put on his clothes, and trimmed the lamp; and having called for pen and ink, he composed the following lines: –
On my cottage roof the evening rain-drops beat;
I draw the blind and near the window take my seat.
To my longing gaze no loved one appears;
Drip, drip, drip, drip: fast flow my tears.

This he read aloud; and when he had finished, a voice outside said, “You want some one to cap your verses there!” Listening attentively, he knew it was Chiang-hsueh; and opening the door he let her in.
