002 范仲淹 – 蘇幕遮
002 FAN Zhongyan – Lyrics to Sumuzhe
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
The sky is blue with clouds, the ground covered in leaves yellowed,
To the water's edge spread autumn colours, cold mist hovers over green waters.
The setting sun reflects off mountain ranges, the sky and waters a picture paint,
Grass feels not, more of it grows beyond the setting sun like uninhibited nostalgia.
Drowning in homesickness, depressed by my time on the road,
Sleepless are nights, unless sweet dreams find me to some rest provide.
Leaning over railings atop a tower to the moon admire is not for those alone,
For a drink of spirits down a saddened soul makes wistful tears flow.
