過故人莊 Stopping at a Friend's Farm-house

孟浩然 Meng Haoran

Preparing me chicken and rice, old friend,
gù rén jù jī shǔ ,
You entertain me at your farm.
yāo wǒ zhì tián jiā 。
绿
We watch the green trees that circle your village
lǜ shù cūn biān hé ,
And the pale blue of outlying mountains.
qīng shān guō wài xié 。
We open your window over garden and field,
kāi xuān miàn chǎng pǔ ,
To talk mulberry and hemp with our cups in our hands.
bǎ jiǔ huà sāng má 。
...Wait till the Mountain Holiday –
dài dào zhòng yáng rì ,
I am coming again in chrysanthemum time.
hái lái jiù jú huā 。
