The Palace of Eternal Youth

Excerpt

Since ancient times how few lovers Have really remained constant to the end; But those who were true have come together at last,

Even though thousands Qf miles apart, Even though torn from each other by death. And all

Who curse their unhappy fate are simply those Lacking in love. True love moves heaven and earth,

Metal and stone, shines like the sun and lights The pages of old histories: loyal subjects And filial sons are all of them true lovers; Even Confucius did not delete the love poems When he compiled the Songs; so we shall now Take music and the tale of Lady Yang To offer a new play in praise of love!

The Emperor Ming Huang and Lady Yang Were destined to be lovers. She was granted The honour of a bath in Huaching Pool, then prayed in the Palace of Eternal Youth . . .
