Morning Departure from City Baidi

Translator: Lei Fan 2016 in Chicago
Farewell City Baidi, a place surrounded by cloud with hundred colors,
Although thousand miles away, back to Jiangling, one day is all it takes.
The whistles of the monkeys has not yet faded along the river banks,
My buoyant boat has already passed all the mountains and ridges, takes me home.
