"By the Painted Hall" by Rebecca Sherman. Inspired by Light Mist Envelopes the Dim Moon by Li Yu (1610-1680), Chinese playwright, novelist and publisher. "In stocking soles, she treads the fragrant steps, And carries in one hand her gold threaded shoes. They meet by the south side of the painted hall, And trembling fall into each others arms. Its hard for me to creep out like a servant, To teach my darling the recklessness of love. "
