the residue of the flavor of plum fruits numbed my teeth,
the plantain leaves' greenness spread to gauzed windows.
In the lengthy day I woke up a spiritless and lethargic piece
And I sat watching kids chasing the blooms of willows.
Inspired by your superb version, I give it a try for fun only as well...
The sour plums have turned my teeth so mellow
The plantain leaves have greened my gauzed window
Tho’ from a long sleep-in I rose listless
I’d fain watch kids chase catkins of willow
