Farewell with Fu Du at East Stone Gate of County Lu

How many days are left for us to inebriate,
For us to visit all the terraces and courts?
When on the road in front of the stone gate,
Can we open the fine wine barrels again?
The water of River Si ripples in the autumn,
Glisten waves light up the mountains afar.
Like cronqs in the wind we will fly away and separate,
Just toast and drain the cups in our hands.
