A girl in a traditional Chinese outfit appears,
sinking slowly to settle down on the bottom of the sea.
The magenta dress, probably made of fine smooth satin,
reveals the youthful reliefs of her slender physique
in shades from the crisp moonlight
despite the darkish gray of the water.
There is no sign of suffering on her light-skinned face
and her eyelids are closed, as if sleeping.
The girl's arm is stretched out directly beneath,
and her wrist as we see
is buckled to a spindle with a handcuff and chains.
