杜甫

















A Stranger's Night
       Dù Fǔ 712-770 

Stranger's night, why can't I get to sleep?
Those autumn skies just won't get light.
Entering my curtain, fading moon shadows;
Propped on a pillow: distant river sounds.
My plans are clumsy--no food or clothing;
My path is blocked--rely on kind friends.
Poor old wife has written several pages--
She must know my feelings far from home.

Dù Fǔ 712-770

Kè shuì hé cénɡ zhù,
Qiū tiān bù kěn mínɡ.
Juǎnlián cányuè yǐnɡ,
Gāozhěn yuǎnjiānɡ shēnɡ.
Jì zhuō wú yīshí,
Tú qiónɡ zhànɡ yǒu shēnɡ.
Lǎoqī shū shù zhǐ,
Yīnɡ xī wèi ɡuī qínɡ.
