旅夜書懷 (唐)杜甫 (712-770)

細草微風岸
危檣獨夜舟
星捶平野闊
月湧大江流

名豈文章著
官因老病休
飄飄何所似
天地一沙鷗

Reflections In An Inn          Du Fu (712-770)         江紹倫譯

Short grass thrive on riverbanks cooled by breezes
Alone a tall mass stands on a boat in darkness
A sky decorated by low stars sets the plain wide
The moon bright heaves up the river’s rolling tide

My fame is not built by my writings at will
Retirement from public office is natural when old and ill
How free it feels doing little I wonder
Like a water bird between sky and land hovers
