Taking Leave Of Du Fu
Li Bai (701 – 762), Chinese poet
translation by Florence Ayscough (1878-1942), British scholar
English verse by Amy Lowell (1874-1925), American poet

When drunk, we were divided ; but we have been
together again
 for several days.
We have climbed everywhere, to every pool and ledge.
When, on the Stone Gate Road,
Shall we pour from the golden flagon again?
The Autumn leaves drop into the Four Waters,
The Ch'u Mountain is brightly reflected in the
color of  the lake.
We are flying like thistledown, each to a different distance;
Pending this, we drain the cups in our hands.


“In The Province Of Lu, To The East Of The Stone Gate Mountain, Taking Leave Of Du Fu”, from Fir-Flower Tablets: Poems From The Chinese (1921)
