289 杜牧 – 將赴吳興登樂遊原
289 DU Mu – Mounting the Leyou Tombs Before Departing for Wuxing
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
Only the incompetent would laze away peaceful times,
I'd stare at a lone cloud when idle, and seek a monk's company for peace and quiet.
Now I'm about to trudge over rivers and seas to a corner administer,
Here on Leyou Tombs my tribute goes to Emperor Taizong.
