Pay heed to me
O my Gardenia blossom
Moist with dewdrops
Of the early morn


I never will forget you
Gentle vow that you gave me
Here it is within me
Where it throbs in my breast

I remain, listening
The rustling murmur of the water
Love is a great treasure
Causing tumult in my heart

The creeping mist
Spreading over the uplands
Moistened by the dew
In the shade of the valley

[Nogelmeier, 2004]
