Weeping at a Dark Night

The crows near City Yellow Cloud are about to home,
Standing on withered branches, they cry out anxiously.
Woman of QingChuan is weaving in the loom room,
see through the green yarn curtain, she is mumbling.
Put aside the shuttles, missing beloved ones faraway,
Staying and talking lonely, her tears keep on falling.
