Mansion of Nobleman Xie

The glows of sunset melt into verdant mountains,
Loneliness permeates throughout this ample mansion.
In the serene and peaceful bamboo garden,
The illusory reflection of the moon in the pond appears pale.
The desolate yard is filled with decayed weeds,
The ruinous well is cushioned with the ancient moss.
What blows freely and carelessly is the breeze,
Gently touches every rocks standing in the gurgling spring.
