025 OUYANG Xiu – Lyrics to Mulberry Pickers
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
After the season of bloom the West Lake shows its best,
Petals fall in disarray, flitting catkins float,
And willows hanging over balustrades waver in the wind all day long.
Instruments and singing come to a lull, guests scatter,
I begin to feel the absence of spring, so I let down the screen over the window,
In the drizzle return a pair of swallows.
