029 韋應物 – 寄全椒山中道士
029 WEI Yingwu – To Toaist Priest Quanjiao in the Mountains
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
It is now morning in the residence study where the cold has set in,
I am suddenly reminded of the outsider who in the mountains resides;
He is probably tying up some twigs and firewood by the creek
To return and a decoction make, to stony doctrines follow for a spiritual life.
I would like to bring him a ladle of wine,
And offer him some comfort from afar in the storm of night.
Yet amid piles of fallen leaves in the uninhabited mountains,
Where would I his whereabouts find?
