寄左省杜拾遺 A Message to Censor Du Fu at his Office in the Left Court

岑參 Cen Can

Together we officials climbed vermilion steps,
lián bù qū dān bì ,
To be parted by the purple walls....
fēn cáo xiàn zǐ wēi 。
Our procession, which entered the palace at dawn,
xiǎo suí tiān zhàng rù ,
Leaves fragrant now at dusk with imperial incense.
mù rě yù xiāng guī 。
...Grey heads may grieve for a fallen flower,
bái fà bēi huā luò ,
Or blue clouds envy a lilting bird;
qīng yún xiàn niǎo fēi 。
But this reign is of heaven, nothing goes wrong,
shèng cháo wú què shì ,
There have been almost no petitions.
zì jué jiàn shū xī 。
