《歸園田居之三》__ 陶潛 (365~427)

種豆南山下 草盛豆苗稀
晨興理荒穢 帶月荷鋤歸

道狹草木長 夕露沾我衣
衣沾不足惜 但使願無違

Back to Nature III      Tao Qian (365–427)  tr By S L Kong

At the foot of the southern hills growing beans I try
Bean stalks soon wilt while grass thrive
To clear the weeds I early rise
Hoe on shoulder I return home by night

Narrow are the paths where shrubs grow tall
My clothes are soaked when heavy dews fall
It matters not if I’m wet
So long as my life goals are met
