Learning of Letian's Banishment To Jiujiang
        Yuan Zhen 779-831

Guttering candle... flameless,
        shadows flicker,
Tonight the news arrives,
        you are banished to Jiujiang.
Shocked I bolt upright in my sickbed,
Dismal cold squall pelts my  window.
 
Wén Lètiān Shòu Jiāngzhōu Sīmǎ
Cándēng wú yàn yǐng zhuàngzhuàng,
Cǐ xī wén jūn zhé Jiǔjiāng.
Chuísǐ bìng zhōng jīng zuòqǐ,
Àn fēng chuī yǔ rù hán chuāng.
