Night Mooring At Ox Island
        Li Bo 699-762

Ox Island West River night,
Not one cloud in black sky.
I climb topside 
        watch the Autumn moon,
Ponder the fate of General Xie.
I also can chant songs,
But he can't hear anymore.
Tomorrow morning I'll set sail,
Maple leaves float down 
        one by one.

Lǐ Bó 699-762

Niúzhǔ Xījiāng yè,
Qīngtiān wú piàn yún.
Dēngzhōu wàng qiūyuè,
Kōng yì Xiè jiāngjun.
Yú yì néng gāoyǒng,
Sīrén bùkě wén.
Míngzhāo guà fān xí,
Fēngyè luò fēnfēn.
