早发白帝城 (唐)李白

朝辞白帝彩云间
千里江陵一日还
两岸猿声啼不住
轻舟已过万重山
 
Leaving Bai Di Chun at Dawn             tr. By S L Kong (Class of 1953)

I left at dawn the castle town of Bai Di beneath colourful clouds
To sail round one thousand li of waters and canyons in a day
While monkeys on shore said adieus aloud
Their sad cries vanished as my skiff passed mountains away
