無題之一 To One Unnamed I

李商隱 Li Shangyin

You said you would come, but you did not, and you left me with no other trace
lái shì kōng yán qù jué zōng ,
Than the moonlight on your tower at the fifth-watch bell.
yuè xié lóu shàng wǔ gèng zhōng 。
I cry for you forever gone, I cannot waken yet,
mèng wèi yuǎn bié tí nán huàn ,
I try to read your hurried note, I find the ink too pale.
shū bèi cuī chéng mò wèi nóng 。
...Blue burns your candle in its kingfisher-feather lantern
là zhào bàn lóng jīn fěi cuì ,
And a sweet breath steals from your hibiscus-broidered curtain.
shè xūn wēi dù xiù fú róng 。
But far beyond my reach is the Enchanted Mountain,
liú láng yǐ hèn péng shān yuǎn ,
And you are on the other side, ten thousand peaks away.
gèng gé péng shān yī wàn zhòng 。
