漫兴 Jueju Free Mood, No. 3 of 9 (I Know Well That My Thatched Hut)

杜甫 Du Fu

I know well that my thatched hut is very low and small,
jiāng shàng yàn zi gù lái pín
Because of that, the swallows on the river often come.
xián ní diǎn wū qín shū nèi
The bits of mud they bring in their mouths get into my zither and books,
gèng jiē fēi chóng dǎ zhe rén
And trying to catch the flying insects, they drive them into me.
