Bai Juyi: Evening Rain

Evening Rain

夜 雨
早 蛩 啼 复 歇
残 灯 灭 又 明。
隔 窗 知 夜 雨
芭 蕉 先 有 声。
Ye Yu

Zao qiong ti fu xie
Can deng mie you ming.                                                                                                          Ge chuang zhi ye yu
Ba jiao xian you sheng.

 

Evening Rain

Early cricket sounds, again stop to rest
Again bright remnants from the lanterns go out.

Behind windows, aware of the evening rain
Earlier on, had the sounds from banana leaves.
