[TRANSLATION]春夜洛城闻笛 – Listen to flute playing in a spring night at City Luoyang


Listen to flute playing at a spring night in City Luoyang

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

Translator: Lei Fan 2016 in Chicago



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.
