Ode to Mulan
Ji-ji, again ji-ji,
Mulan faces the door, weaving.
You can’t hear the sound of the loom’s shuttle,
You only hear Daughter’s sighs.
They ask Daughter who’s in her thought,
They ask Daughter who’s on her memory.
“No one is on Daughter’s thought,
No one is on Daughter’s memory.
Last night I saw the army notices,
The Khan is calling for a great force.
The army register is in twelve scrolls,
and every scrolls has Father’s name.
