Huazi Ridge (After Wang Wei)

Huazi Ridge

Limitless birds merging
with the autumn-colored hills
all along Huazi Ridge
this sadness, too, without end

Another adaptation. I hope that I’ve not strayed too far from the original’s tone.

The transliteration on Chinese-Poems.com offers:

Fly bird go no limit
Join mountain again autumn colour
Up down Huazi Ridge
Melancholy feeling what extreme

  2. Beautifully adapted. What I love about these are the many, many ways they could go. In just the first line I saw something completely different in meaning to that of yours. Very nice!
