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
