遊子吟 A Traveller's Song

孟郊 Meng Jiao

线
The thread in the hands of a fond-hearted mother
cí mǔ shǒu zhōng xiàn ,
Makes clothes for the body of her wayward boy;
yóu zi shēn shàng yī ;
Carefully she sews and thoroughly she mends,
lín xíng mì mì fèng ,
Dreading the delays that will keep him late from home.
yì kǒng chí chí guī 。
But how much love has the inch-long grass
shuí yán cùn cǎo xīn ,
For three spring months of the light of the sun?
bào dé sān chūn huī ?
