"The Dragon King's Daughter"

Tonight, I read a Tang Dynasty Story  
to the vibration of a hurricane's thunder:  
 
The Dragon King's Daughter  
written at the beginning  
of the ninth century.  
 
It's an age-old tale  
of romance  
between a young man  
and the dragon king's daughter  
by Li Chaowei.  
 
It ripples through centuries  
from Dongting Lake  
soothing a long day;  
 
Allowing an ancient plot twist
and modern woman  
to softly embrace.
