蜀相 The Temple of the Premier of Shu

杜甫 Du Fu

Where is the temple of the famous Premier? –
chéng xiāng cí táng hé chù xún ?
In a deep pine grove near the City of Silk,
jǐn guān chéng wài bǎi sēn sēn ,
With the green grass of spring colouring the steps,
yìng jiē bì cǎo zì chūn sè ,
And birds chirping happily under the leaves.
gé yè huáng lí kōng hǎo yīn 。
...The third summons weighted him with affairs of state
sān gù pín fán tiān xià jì ,
And to two generations he gave his true heart,
liǎng cháo kāi jì lǎo chén xīn 。
But before he could conquer, he was dead;
chū shī wèi jié shēn xiān sǐ ,
使
And heroes have wept on their coats ever since.
zhǎng shǐ yīng xióng lèi mǎn jīn 。
