Today's Beautiful Gem: "Source of Sorrow"
by Wu Yung of T'ang Dynasty (618-907).

"Lingering, lingering,
Pulsating, pulsating
Two hearts beat in one.
Fine as a gossamer,
Vast as the waves,
Inconstant as the moon,
Frail as a flower,
This strange thing we call love,
What a prolific source of sorrow it is!"

Om Santih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
