Moon over Mountain Pass

by
 A bright moon rising above Tian Shan Mountain,
Lost in a vast ocean of clouds.
The long wind, across thousands upon thousands of miles, Blows past the Jade-gate Pass.
The army of Han has gone down the Baiteng Road, As the barbarian hordes probe at Qinghai Bay.
It is known that from the battlefield Few ever live to return.
Men at Garrison look on the border scene, Home thoughts deepen sorrow on their faces.
In the towered chambers tonight, Ceaseless are the women's sighs.
