My White Hair

Original Text: 

300 Gems of Classical Chinese Poetry, trans. Xu Yuanchong (the Chinese-English Edition with Chinese Phonetic Symbols; Beijing: Peking University Press, 2004): 198-99.

1Long, long is my whitening hair;
2Long, long is it laden with care.
3I look into my mirror bright.
4From where comes autumn frost in sight?
