Wang Wei: Undulating Willow Trees

Undulating Willow Trees

柳 浪
分 行 接 绮 树
倒 影 入 清 漪。
不 学 御 溝 上
春 风 傷 别 離。
Liu Lang

Fen hang jie qi shu
Dao ying ru qing yi.                                                                                                                   Bu xue yu gou shang
Chun feng shang bie li.


Undulating Willow Trees

Separate rows of interconnected exquisite trees
Their shadows fall down to enter the clear water ripples.

No plan or control needed to plant them upon furrows
Spring breezes wound them and our departures.
