Autumn River Song

The moon shimmers in green water.
White herons fly through the moonlight.

The young man hears a girl gathering water-chestnuts:
into the night, singing, they paddle home together.

It is rubbish and I have never heard anything so bad
Simply superb poem depicting tranquility and life full of contentment.
