《南山田中行》 李贺


A Walk in the Fields of the Southern Mountain
Li He

Around fields bright, autumn wind whitening,
Waters bubbling, insects chirruping.
Feet of the clouds: the mossy rocks on the slopes,
Girlish flowers, cold in dew-tears, weep tenderly.
Forlorn stubble is putting forth some idle shoots,
In the paddy after harvest, fireflies flickering low.
A rocky fountain drips its way into the sand,
Ghost-lamps wander in the dark like catkins drifting by.
