Description

Excerpt from The Lotus Lantern The blind mm was piping on his bunch of reeds, a thin, sweet, insistent note; it came up from the valley below the Em bassy gardens, shrill as the piping of Pan. The day had been breathless in Tokyo, but a light breeze came in now from the sea and stirred the folds of the British flag, hanging lazily on its staff at the far end of the lawns. A few lights shone in the Embassy buildings, and lights twinkled here and there in the Koji-machi quarter, while across the white waters of the great moat the giant pines in the Imperial grounds gathered darkly about the palace of the Son of Heaven. Above all, dominating the scene, crowning it with a mysterious glory, sanctifying it with an almost spiritual beauty, was the rosy, snow capped cone of the sacred Fuji.
