The Eclipse of the Moon (Lu T’ung; died 835 AD), 5th stanza
There is another ancient tale I know
Of a demon frog which comes to eat the Moon.
If the disc of a thousand miles wide has gone down into your belly,
Who was the dam that bore you, ignorant brute?
Can it be that, risen from the caves of the sea,
You have learned to climb the blue void?
Blotted out what took so long to grow.
The Yellow Emperor had two pairs of eyes,
Emperor Shun saw clear through double pupils;
When either Emperor focused his four eyes
The beams spread all the way to the four seas.
