Gliding through

Yutang Lin

Worldly scenes are evolving like running streams;
Let glide slippery through, no efforts to hold back.
Being simple and factual is easier to pass the days;
Whatever will last long rests on a clear conscience.


Cold or warm receptions take turns with times;
Recounting old stories is vain in remembering.
Keep only good wills to pacify time remaining;
Behaving sincerely makes life simple and easy.
