 Seven-Character Regulated Verse

  It’s Love or Hate?

It’s love or hate, the melodies of the zitherist?
Regrets, then the saddest , now the sweetest.
 Doubtful steps counted the secret hints missed,
Frosty leaves tapped the musing eaves in mist.
Memories upon memories, fallen petals, unawares;
Nights for sleeplessness, the dreadful floor, whereas!
Swift clouds drifting over the tiled roofs below,
With a fenced lamp and a lonesome shadow.
