夢李白之二 Seeing Li Bai in a Dream II

杜甫 Du Fu

This cloud, that has drifted all day through the sky,
fú yún zhōng rì xíng ,
May, like a wanderer, never come back....
yóu zi jiǔ bù zhì ;
Three nights now I have dreamed of you –
sān yè pín mèng jūn ,
As tender, intimate and real as though I were awake.
qíng qīn jiàn jūn yì 。
And then, abruptly rising to go,
gào guī cháng jú cù ,
You told me the perils of adventure
kǔ dào lái bù yì 。
By river and lake-the storms, the wrecks,
jiāng hú duō fēng bō ,
The fears that are borne on a little boat;
zhōu jí kǒng shī zhuì 。
And, here in my doorway, you rubbed your white head
chū mén sāo bái shǒu ,
As if there were something puzzling you.
ruò fù píng shēng zhì 。
滿
...Our capital teems with officious people,
guān gài mǎn jīng huá ,
While you are alone and helpless and poor.
sī rén dú qiáo cuì 。
Who says that the heavenly net never fails?
shú yún wǎng huī huī ?
It has brought you ill fortune, old as you are.
jiāng lǎo shēn fǎn lèi !
...A thousand years' fame, ten thousand years' fame-
qiān qiū wàn suì míng ,
What good, when you are dead and gone.
jì mò shēn hòu shì 。
