His Dark Origins Senlin sits before us, and we see him .. .H esmokes his pipe before us, and we hear him .. .I she small, with reddish hair, Does he light his pipe with a meditative stare, And a pointed flame reflected in both eyes? Is he sad and happy and foolish and wise? ... Did no one see him enter the doors of the city, Looking about him at roofs and trees and skies? .. .I stepped from a cloud, he says, as evening fell, I walked on the sound of a bell; I ran with winged heels along a gust; Or is it true that I laughed and sprang from the dust? .. .H as no one, in a great autumnal forest, When the wind bares the trees with mournful tone, Heard the sad horn of Senlin slowly blown? .. .H as no one, on a mountain in the spring, Heard Senlin sing? Perhaps I came alone on a snow-white horse, Riding alone from the deep-starred night. Perhaps I came on a ship whose sails were music, Sailing from moon or sun on a river of light.
