Taking Leave of the Flowering Trees I planted on Eastern Slope, #2
Bai Juyi 722-846

You flowering groves, good luck--no long faces!
When spring comes, just go on as in springs gone by.
Next year when a new governer sits upstairs,
no telling but he too will be a lover of flowers.
 
Bié Zhòng Dōngpō Huā Shù Liáng Jué
Bái Jūyì 722-846

Huā lín hǎo zhù mò qiáocuì,
Chūn zhì dàn zhī yījiù chūn.
Lóushàng míngnián xīn Tàishǒu,
Bùfáng háishì ài huā rén.
