Nine Days On The Road, Gonna' Make It Home Tonight
         Meng Haoran

Seems only yesterday I left home,
Yet suddenly it's already early fall.
My Xian Mountain not in sight,
And the scene here makes my grieve. 
Who plucks chrysanthemums now
        under the brushwood fence?
I should be enjoying the pavillion by the pool.
Return and float with Ge Qiang.
Savor the pristine wines of Yicheng.
 
Túzhōng Jiǔrì Huái Xiāngyáng
Qù guó sì rú zuó,
Hòu rán jiāng miǎo qiū.
Xiànshān bù kě jiàn,
Fēngjìng lìngrén qiū.
Shuí cǎi líjú xià,
Yīng xián chí shàng lóu.
Yí chéng duō měi jiǔ,
Guī yǔ Gé Qiáng yóu.

Notes:
The pool is the 習家池 Xijiachi, an ancient pool with a fishing pavillion located at the foot of Xian Mountain just south of the city of Xiangyang, Hubei.
