Some Chinese Ghosts

by Lafcadio Hearn


To my friend HENRY EDWARD KREHBIEL

THE MUSICIAN

WHO, SPEAKING THE SPEECH OF MELODY UNTO THE CHILDREN OF TIEN-HIA,—
UNTO THE WANDERING TSING-JIN, WHOSE SKINS HAVE THE COLOR OF GOLD,—
MOVED THEM TO MAKE STRANGE SOUNDS UPON THE SERPENT-BELLIED SAN-HIEN;
PERSUADED THEM TO PLAY FOR ME UPON THE SHRIEKING YA-HIEN;
PREVAILED ON THEM TO SING ME A SONG OF THEIR NATIVE LAND,—
THE SONG OF MOHLI-HWA,
THE SONG OF THE JASMINE-FLOWER
