嫦娥 To the Moon Goddess

李商隱 Li Shangyin

Now that a candle-shadow stands on the screen of carven marble
yún mǔ píng fēng zhú yǐng shēn ,
And the River of Heaven slants and the morning stars are low,
zhǎng hé jiàn luò xiǎo xīng chén 。
Are you sorry for having stolen the potion that has set you
cháng é yīng huǐ tōu líng yào ,
Over purple seas and blue skies, to brood through the long nights?
bì hǎi qīng tiān yè yè xīn 。
