旅宿 A Night at a Tavern

杜牧 Du Mu

Solitary at the tavern,
lǚ guǎn wú liáng bàn ,
I am shut in with loneliness and grief.
níng qíng zì qiāo rán 。
Under the cold lamp, I brood on the past;
hán dēng sī jiù shì ,
I am kept awake by a lost wildgoose.
duàn yàn jǐng chóu mián 。
...Roused at dawn from a misty dream,
yuǎn mèng guī qīn xiǎo ,
I read, a year late, news from home –
jiā shū dào gé nián 。
And I remember the moon like smoke on the river
cāng jiāng hǎo yān yuè ,
And a fisher-boat moored there, under my door.
mén xì diào yú chuán 。
