Bai Juyi: Evening Gaze Into the Distance

Evening Gaze Into the Distance

晚 望
江 城 寒 角 动
沙 洲 夕 鸟 还。
独 在 高 亭 上
西 南 望 远 山。
Wan Wang

Jiang cheng han jiao dong
Sha zhou xi niao huan.                                                                                                             Du zai gao ting shang
Xi nan wang yuan shan.

 

Evening Gaze Into the Distance

Cold river city walls, troops in motion
At sunset, birds return to the sandy river islets.

In a tall pavilion, solitude arrives
Gaze into the distance, remote mountains to the southwest.
