Du Fu: SEEING Li Bai IN A DREAM II – 杜甫《夢李白之二》 ~ 300 Tang Poems

Listen to this article

杜甫

夢李白之二

浮雲終日行, 遊子久不至;
三夜頻夢君, 情親見君意。
告歸常局促, 苦道來不易。
江湖多風波, 舟楫恐失墜。
出門搔白首, 若負平生志。
冠蓋滿京華, 斯人獨憔悴。
孰云網恢恢? 將老身反累!
千秋萬歲名, 寂寞身後事。

SEEING Li Bai IN A DREAM II

This cloud, that has drifted all day through the sky,
May, like a wanderer, never come back….
Three nights now I have dreamed of you —
As tender, intimate and real as though I were awake.
And then, abruptly rising to go,
You told me the perils of adventure
By river and lake-the storms, the wrecks,
The fears that are borne on a little boat;
And, here in my doorway, you rubbed your white head
As if there were something puzzling you.
…Our capital teems with officious people,
While you are alone and helpless and poor.
Who says that the heavenly net never fails?
It has brought you ill fortune, old as you are.
…A thousand years’ fame, ten thousand years’ fame-
What good, when you are dead and gone.
