Thanks for your works.Here is another version  of  this poem <table border=“0” cellspacing=“0” cellpadding=“0” align=“left”><tbody><tr><td align=“left” valign=“top”> 
at the plenary meeting
three thousand right hands are raised
at the same level
like a lawn trimmed by a mower
 
a spring swallow
opened its scissors tail
flew past above my arm
I gave out a sad, shrill cry
</strong>
