A Rural Home
|Chicken crow three sound sky almost bright|
Someone row rice bowl with tea bottle
Common people still fear hurry plough early
Self pull wicker window look morning star
|The cock crows three times; the sky is almost light.|
Someone’s lined up bowls of rice, along with flasks of tea.
Anxiously, the peasants rush to start the ploughing early,
I pull aside the willow shutter and gaze at the morning stars.
