《望湖楼上作》 潘阆


Written on the Lake View Tower
P’an Lang

Standing all day on Lake View Tower,
Too lazy to think of going home,
I listen to the river flow off toward the Milky Way
And watch the clouds pass an isolated peak.
A lonely boat is pulled up on the bank;
A bird stands facing me in perfect calm.
I turn my head, the double gates are closed;
Bullfrogs are croaking in the sunset.
