A Tranquil Night
300 Gems of Classical Chinese Poetry, trans. Xu Yuanchong (the Chinese-English Edition with Chinese Phonetic Symbols; Beijing: Peking University Press, 2004): 190-91.
1Before my bed a pool of light—
2 Can it be hoarfrost on the ground?
3Looking up, I find the moon bright;
4 Bowing, in homesickness I’m drowned.
