· Grief of Pavting
It threatens snow in forests scattered here and there;
Why should the bamboo fence look free from care?
Languid, how can I bear to leave my love so fair?
I want to take her hand so slender.
How can I bear her tearful face so tender!
We meet with broken heart, speechless for soon we’ll part.
This lyric describes the lovers’ grief of meeting and parting.
