逢入京使 On Meeting a Messenger to the Capital

岑參 Cen Can

It's a long way home, a long way east.
gù yuán dōng wàng lù màn màn ,
I am old and my sleeve is wet with tears.
shuāng xiù lóng zhōng lèi bù gān 。
We meet on horseback. I have no means of writing.
mǎ shàng xiāng féng wú zhǐ bǐ ,
Tell them three words: "He is safe."
píng jūn chuán yǔ bào píng ān 。
