Biao You Mei

Dropping are the fruits from the plum-tree ;
There are [but] seven [tenths] of them left !
For the gentlemen who seek me ,
This is the fortunate time !

Dropping are the fruits from the plum-tree ;
There are [but] three [tenths] of them left !
For the gentlemen who seek me ,
Now is the time .

Dropt are the fruits from the plum-tree ;
In my shallow basket I have collected them .
Would the gentlemen who seek me
[Only] speak about it !
