The Song Book of Quong Lee 

by Thomas Burke 

Buying and Selling 

Throughout the day I sit behind the counter of my shop
And the odours of my country are all about me--
Areca nut, and betel leaf, and manioc,
Lychee and suey sen,
Li-un and dried seaweed,
Tchah and sam-shu;
And these carry my mind to half-forgotten days
When tales were plentiful and care was hard to hold. 

All day I sell for trifling sums the wares of my own land,
And buy for many cash such things as people wish to sell,
That I may sell them again to others,
