Listen to this article

五言律詩
李商隱

本以高難飽, 徒勞恨費聲。
五更疏欲斷, 一樹碧無情。
薄宦梗猶汎, 故園蕪已平。
煩君最相警, 我亦舉家清。


Five-character-regular-verse
Li Shangyin

A CICADA

Pure of heart and therefore hungry,
All night long you have sung in vain —
Oh, this final broken indrawn breath
Among the green indifferent trees!
Yes, I have gone like a piece of driftwood,
I have let my garden fill with weeds….
I bless you for your true advice
To live as pure a life as yours.
