and my grandmother joins her.
Mother and daughter sing
like young girls.
If my father were alive,
he would play
and sway like a boat.
I’ve never been in Peking,
or the Summer Palace,
nor stood on the great Stone Boat
to watch the rain begin
on Kuen Ming Lake,
running away in the grass.
But I love to hear it sung;
how the water lilies fill with rain until
they overturn, spilling water into water,
then rock back, and fill with more.
Both women have begun to cry.
But neither stops her song.
~Li Young Lee
