Sound of Rain
        Yu Ji 1272-1348

I sit imprisoned behind screens
            My hair thin and scraggy,
The candle remnant gutters
            As I drink at dusk.
Many years wasted in Peking
            My spirit exhausted,
Suddenly the sound of Spring rain
            Brings thoughts of my Southern home.

Yú Jí 1272-1348

Píng gāng wéi zuò fà sānsān,
Yínzhú shāo cánzhào mú hān.
Jīng guó duō nián qíng jìn gǎi,
Hū tīng chūnyǔ yì Jiāngnán.

Written while the poet was in Peking
