This piece is the cello version of "Docking Overnight by Maple Bridge." It was world-premiered by cellist Chien Hui Yang at the Recital Hall of the Department of Chinese Music, Tainan National University of the Arts on April 27, 2014. The original music came from Ssu-Yu Huang's "Grand Music of Tang" No. 5 for classical guitar, which was inspired by a poem of Zhang Ji (c. 753 AD) of Tang Dynasty under the same title:

    At moonset the crows caw through the frosty sky.
    Unable to sleep, I watch maple trees by fishing light.
    Outside Gusu, Cold Mountain Temple stands upright.
    The sound of its bells reaches my boat at midnight.
