Banquet at the Pavilion in Tao’s Garden

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

Translator: Lei Fan 2017 in Chicago

 

 

Winding roadway leads to a hidden garden,

Tall gate and wall protects a wealthy family.

The pond is as clear as the bronze mirror,

Beautiful flowers bring joy to every guests.

Water ripples, reflecting the sunshine of spring,

Corridors enshrine the charming sunset glows.

If you are lucky enough to hear the live music,

Even Garden of Gold Valley can not compare.

 

《宴陶家亭子》唐朝 李白
曲巷幽人宅,高门大士家。池开照胆镜,林吐破颜花
绿水藏春日,青轩秘晚霞。若闻弦管妙,金谷不能夸
