Interpretation of this poem
Ezra pound once commented:
"Jewelled Stairs, therefore a palace. Grievance, so she is aggrieved about
something. Gauze stockings, therefore a court lady and not a servant who
complains. She's been there waiting for hours, because the dew has soaked
the srairs and her stockings. She is giving up hope and closing (again,
evidence of a palace) the crystal curtain. Clear autumn, so her man friend
has no excuse for not turning up on account of bad weather. The poem is
especially prized because it is elliptical, and she is not making any
If the Poem was translated into modern American English it might read
Waiting on the battlements
I waited until the morning hours when the dew had fallen
The steps and my nylons got well soaked
I gave up waiting and bolted the door
In the clear, cold beautiful moonlight
And an American English version would probably add
"It's the last time I'll wait up for that inconsiderate rogue"

This poem is the version of Ezra Pound ,who have translated many Chinese
classic poems.This poem is origin written by Chinese poet -LiPo in Chinese
Tang dynasty . It expresses the feeling of a wife who is waiting for her
husband in far away.

I am amazed that no comment was made on this poem. It is an unmatchable
example of lyrics, no matter far east or near west.
