题 安 州 浮 云 寺 楼 奇 湖 州 张 郎 中
去 夏 疏 雨 欲
同 倚 朱 栏 语。
当 时 楼 下 水
今 日 到 何 处。
恨 如 春 草 多
事 与 孤 鸿 去。
楚 岸 柳 何 穷
别 愁 纷 若 絮。
Ti An Zhou Fu Yun Si Lou Qi Hu Zhou Zhang Lang Zhong

Qu xia shu yu yu
Tong yi zhu lan yu.
Dang shi lou xia shui
Jin ri dao he chu.

Hen ru chun cao duo
Shi yu gu hong qu.
Chu an liu he qiong
Bie chou fen ruo xu.

Late summer we met during a scattered rain
Share our stories along the vermilion railings.
Below this tower, to where does this river flow
Wonder where it will wind up today.

Regrets like many spring grasses
Affairs like a solitary departing crane.
Chu riverside willow trees, when have they withered?
Our melancholy departure chaotic like the willow tree seeds on the wind.
