With a red winnowing fan

blushing cheeks and sublime smile

this geisha girl I adore

Cool culture pleaser, Peter! I can hear the Japanese zither in tune with this. I burn a Japanese incense, they are called joss sticks. The resin is sensuous as is the Geisha dance.

Love this form. I can see how it originated in song, as the last line is shorter for emphasis. Simply beautiful, Peter...Lin
