When the guests had taken their leave， Shih-yin did not go back to rejoin Yue-ts'un， as he had come to know that he had already left. silent vibrators
In time the mid-autumn festivities drew near； and Shih-yin， after the family banquet was over， had a separate table laid in the library， and crossed over， in the moonlight， as far as the temple and invited Yue-ts'un to come round.
the fact is that Yue-ts'un， ever since the day on which he had seen the girl of the Chen family turn twice round to glance at him， flattered himself that she was friendly disposed towards him， and incessantly fostered fond thoughts of her in his heart. And on this day， which happened to be the mid-autumn feast， he could not， as he gazed at the moon， refrain from cherishing her remembrance. Hence it was that he gave vent to these pentameter verses：
Alas！ not yet divined my lifelong wish， And anguish ceaseless comes upon anguish I came， and sad at heart， my brow I frowned； She went， and oft her head to look turned round. Facing the breeze， her shadow she doth watch， Who's meet this moonlight night with her to match？ The lustrous rays if they my wish but read Would soon alight upon her beauteous head！ sec toy
Yue-ts'un having， after this recitation， recalled again to mind how that throughout his lifetime his literary attainments had had an adverse fate and not met with an opportunity （of reaping distinction）， went on to rub his brow， and as he raised his eyes to the skies， he heaved a deep sigh and once more intoned a couplet aloud： swx toys
the gem in the cask a high price it seeks， The pin in the case to take wing it waits.
As luck would have it， Shih-yin was at the moment approaching， and upon hearing the lines， he said with a smile： "My dear Yue-ts'un， really your attainments are of no ordinary capacity."
Yue-ts'un lost no time in smiling and replying. "It would be presumption in my part to think so，" he observed. "I was simply at random humming a few verses composed by former writers， and what reason is there to laud me to such an excessive deGREe？ To what， my dear Sir， do I owe the pleasure of your visit？" he went on to inquire. "Tonight，" replied Shih-yin， "is the mid-autumn feast， generally known as the full-moon festival； and as I could not help thinking that living， as you my worthy brother are， as a mere stranger in this Buddhist temple， you could not but experience the feeling of loneliness. I have， for the express purpose， prepared a small entertainment， and will be pleased if you will come to my mean abode to have a glass of wine. But I wonder whether you will entertain favourably my modest invitation？" Yue-ts'un， after listening to the proposal， put forward no refusal of any sort； but remarked complacently： "Being the recipient of such marked attention， how can I presume to repel your generous consideration？"
As he gave expression to these words， he walked off there and then， in company with Shih-yin， and came over once again into the court in front of the library. In a few minutes， tea was over.
the cups and dishes had been laid from an early hour， and needless to say the wines were luscious； the fare sumptuous.
