I would still be lonely

From The Song in the Dream of the Hermit: Selections from the Kanginshu

Do not
wear white

it will shine
in the light
of the moon

will know

I would still be lonely
even lying there with you,
moonlight slanting
through the window,
temple bells ringing
for the break of dawn
