Listen to flute playing at a spring night in City Luoyang

Author: Bai Li(AD701-AD762, Tang Dynasty)

From whose courtyard does this melody of jade flute fly out,

Scattered into the spring breeze waving through City Luoyang.

Stranger in this place I could hear the rhythm of ‘willow picking’,

At such night I can not stop thinking of where I left, my hometown.

 

春夜洛城闻笛



谁家玉笛暗飞声,

散入春风满洛城。

此夜曲中闻折柳,

何人不起故园情。
