Overnight in a Mountain Temple by Li Bai (translation)

Mary Tang’s translations are addictive. Read them at your own risk. 🙂

Life is But This 命

Overnight in a Mountain Temple by Li Bai (701 – 762) 

This derelict edifice towers so high

I can pluck the stars from the sky

I dare not speak in a shouting pitch

Fearing of startling the immortals

(c) Mary Tang 鄧許文蘭 2017

夜宿山寺。李白

危樓高百尺,手可摘星辰。

不敢高聲語,恐驚天上人。
