the emperor li yu held captive at kaifeng

(from the chinese)

silent and alone i climb the west tower
the moon is like a sickle
a tree in the courtyard
personifies autumn herself imprisoned there
what ties me to the world is being cut but is not yet severed
my thoughts run wild
i have lost everything
the sadness of what i have lost
the memory of it in my heart
