Li Bai: Mt. Emei Moon Song

Mt. Emei Moon Song

峨 眉 山 月 歌
峨 眉 山 月 半 轮 秋
影 入 平 羌 江 水 流。
夜 发 清 溪 向 三 峡
思 君 不 见 下 渝 州。
E Mei Shan Yue Ge

E mei shan yue ban lun qiu
Ying ru ping qiang jiang shui liu.                                                                                            Ye fa qing xi xiang san xia
Si jun bu jian xia yu zhou.
