Standing out among madly noisy chickens with no companion in the high bamboo fence.
Concerned of a red crest falling off with the head lowered, pure white feathers melting down under the scorching sun.
Disliking for cormorants with cheesy feather colors, parrots with a flirting voice.
Crying along the winds, being consumed by contemplation with sorrowful eyes overseeing greeneries, skies and river stream.
- 1st verse of “Crane on the Lake” by Bai Juyii (772∼846)
