Du Fu Poem: The Lonely Swan – 杜甫《孤雁》

孤雁

杜甫
孤雁不饮啄,
飞鸣声念群。
谁怜一片影,
相失万重云?
望尽似犹见,
哀多如更闻。
野鸦无意绪,
鸣噪自纷纷。

The Lonely Swan

Du Fu
The lonely swan won’t drink nor eat,
But longs to join its flock to fleet.
Who will pity its shadow lonely,
Astray in the clouds, it wails only.
Out of sight, still it seems in view;
Lost in grief, its song’s heard anew.
What do insensible birds know?
You hear only caws of the crow.
This is the song of a lonely swan longing for its flock.
