Shopping just eats time, though, no matter how one may rush. It doesn't help when the store has but one checkstand open.
Anyway, late again. Here's this:
by Po Chu-I
After lunch—one short nap:
On waking up—two cups of tea.
Raising my head, I see the sun's light
Once again slanting to the south-west.
Those who are happy regret the shortness of the day;
Those who are sad tire of the year's sloth.
But those whose hearts are devoid of joy or sadness
Just go on living, regardless of "short" or "long".
