Autumn Meditations (3)

1000 home mountain suburb quiet morning light
One day river tower sit green hill
Two nights fishermen still float float
Clear autumn swallow old fly fly
Kuang Heng submit memorial achieve rank little
Liu Xiang transmit classic heart affair apart
Schoolmates early years many not poor
5 tombs furs horse self light fat

A mountain suburb of a thousand homes in the quiet morning light,
All day I sit by the river in my tower on the green hill.
For two nights the fishermen have stayed there floating, floating,
In the clear autumn still the swallows fly and fly.
Kuang Heng submitted memorials; I've won little praise,
Liu Xiang passed on the classics; my wishes are not realised.
The schoolmates of my early years mostly are not poor,
In the five tomb towns their furs and horses light and fat.
