孤雁 The Solitary Goose

杜甫 Du Fu

The solitary goose does not drink or eat,
gū yàn bù yǐn zhuó
It flies about and calls, missing the flock.
fēi míng shēng niàn qún
No-one now remembers this one shadow,
shuí lián yī piàn yǐng
They've lost each other in the myriad layers of cloud.
xiāng shī wàn zhòng yún
It looks into the distance: seems to see,
wàng jǐn shì yóu jiàn
It's so distressed, it thinks that it can hear.
āi duō rú gèng wén
Unconsciously, the wild ducks start to call,
yě yā wú yì xù
Cries of birds are everywhere confused.
míng zào yì fēn fēn
