003張九齡 – 感遇四首其三
003 ZHANG Jiuling – Thoughts III of IV
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
As a hermit I recline in isolation,
Cleansing and clearing thoughts as reclusion intends.
With such sincerity I acknowledge the wild birds of passage,
Entrusting them to my sentiments towards the distant send.
Day and night I dream in vain,
Yet is there anyone who can sympathise and comprehend?
In the power and in the wild are worlds apart,
So how will my loyalty and devotion ever be consoled?
