Meng Jiao: A SONG OF A PURE-HEARTED GIRL – 孟郊《烈女操》 ~ 300 Tang Poems

Listen to this article

樂府
孟郊

烈女操

梧桐相待老, 鴛鴦會雙死;
貞婦貴殉夫, 捨生亦如此。
波瀾誓不起, 妾心井中水。


Folk-song-styled-verse
Meng Jiao

A SONG OF A PURE-HEARTED GIRL

Lakka-trees ripen two by two
And mandarin-ducks die side by side.
If a true-hearted girl will love only her husband,
In a life as faithfully lived as theirs,
What troubling wave can arrive to vex
A spirit like water in a timeless well?
