王昌齡







At Hibiscus Tower Seeing Off Xin Jiàn
        Wang Changling  698-755

On a frigid rainy night
        on south flowing river
                we enter Wu,
At daybreak
        we part
                on desolate Chu Mountain.
Luoyang friends and family
        if we were only together now,
Happily we'd share
        a jug of wine.
 
Fúrónglóu Sòng Xīn Jiàn
Wáng Chánglíng 698-755

Hán yǔ lián jiāng yè rù Wú,
Píngmíng sòng kè Chu shān gū.
Luòyáng qīnyǒu xiāng wèn,
Yī piàn bīng xīn zài yùhú.
