Beyond the Horizon by Li Shang Yin(Translation)

My translation of a Tang Dynasty poem by Li Shang Yin (813 – 858):

 

Beyond the Horizon

There is a spring day beyond the horizon

There is a sunset at the end of the sky

If there be tears when the orioles cry

Do wet for me those blooms on high

(c) Mary Tang 鄧許文蘭 2017

 

天涯

春日在天涯,天涯日又斜。

鶯啼如有淚,為濕最高花。

李商隱 (c.813 – 858)
