Tz'u No. 5

To the tune of "Like a Dream"

I always remember the sunset
  over the pavilion by the river,
so tipsy we could not find our way home.

Our interest exhausted, the evening late,
  we tried to turn the boat homeward.
By mistake, we entered deep within the lotus bed.

Row! Row the boat!

A flock of herons, frightened,
  suddenly flew skyward.
