The Red Cockatoo
Bai Juyi 772-846

Sent as a present from Annam--
A red cockatoo.
Coloured like the peach-tree blossom,
Speaking with the speech of men.
And they did to it what is always done
To the learned and eloquent.
They took a cage with stout bars
And shut it up inside. 
 
Hóng Yīngwǔ
Bái Jūyì 772-846

Ānnán yuǎn jìn hóng yīngwǔ,
Sè sì táohuā yǔ sì rén.
Wénzhāng biàn huì jiē rú cǐ,
Lóng kǎn hé nián chū dé shēn.
