賈島







For Mr. Ling Hu
        Jia Dao 793-865

With hiking stick
he makes good time in the mountains;

asks everyone he meets,
how far is it to Zizhou.

But the Yangzi's
in fact too far by foot;

and the travelers,
feeling for him, all feel for him.
 
Jì Lìnghú Xiānggōng
Jia Dao 793-865

Cèzhàng chí shānyì,
Féngrén wèn Zǐzhōu.
Chāngjiāng nà kědào,
Xíngkè tì shēng chóu.
