Wei Yingwu: Autumn Night, Send This Off to Government Minister Qiu the Twenty-Second

Autumn Night, Send This Off to Government Minister Qiu the Twenty-Second

秋 夜 寄 丘 二 十 二 员 外
怀 君 属 秋 夜
散 步 咏 凉 天。                                                                                                      山 空 松 子 落
幽 人 犹 未 眠。
Qiu Ye Ji Qiu Er Shi Er Yuan Wai

Huai jun zhu qiu ye
San bu yong liang tian.                                                                                                        Shan kong song zi luo
You ren you wei mian.

 

Autumn Night, Send This Off to Government Minister Qiu the Twenty-Second

Thinking of you especially on this autumn night
In a separated circumstance, sing to the cool sky.

Empty mountains, pine cones fall down
People living in seclusion probably not yet asleep too.

 

Notes:

Twenty-Second: The birth order of Mr. Qiu within his extended family.
