蔡庈瑞







Autumn Butterflies
        Cai Qinrui 1671-1745

Expelled from Spring luster
        they seek the forest,
Chrysanthemum blossoms
        a hermit's abode
                is my goal.
Perched of a branch
        can this be
                their village home?
Wind rises in the oaks
        cold dew deep.

Cài Qínruì 1671-1745

Bù zhú qūnguāng rù shàng lín,
Júhuā sānjìng zuì guānxīn.
Zhītóu mòshì zhuāng shēng mèng,
Xǔxǔ fēng shēng lěng lù shēn.
