夜雨 (唐) 白居易 (772~848)

早蛩啼复歇  残灯灭又明 
隔窗知夜雨  芭蕉先有声
 
Rain At Night
                        tr. By K.C. Lee

Intermittently the anticipating morning insects twitter,
On and off the remaining evening lights flicker.
Pouring night rain imposes its presence through shuttered windows,
Heralded by pattering on broad leaf plants out in the meadows.

    Evening Rain
    Bai Juyi

    Day bugs twittering on and off,
    the dying lamp turns alight now and again.
    Outside the window evening rain is heard
    first splattering on banana leaves thence.
