Poems of Tragedy: V. Italy. Ginevra / by Samuel Rogers (1763–1855)

History of Literature
Symbolism and Art design
A veil of wild mist
hides the tall bridge.
By a rock on the west bank,
I ask a fisher boat:
“The peach petals keep floating
with the water the whole day.
On which side of the clear stream
can I find the cave?”
(Zhang Xu, Peach Blossom Stream)1
