Travelling Again by Du Fu

TRAVELLING AGAIN

By DU FU

Temple remember once travel place
Bridge remember again cross time

River mountain like waiting
Flower willow become selfless

Country vivid mist shine thin
Sand soft sun colour late

Traveller sorrow all become decrease
Stay here again what this

I remember the temple, this route I’ve travelled before,
I recall the bridge as I cross it again.

It seems the hills and rivers have been waiting,
The flowers and willows all are selfless now.

The field is sleek and vivid, thin mist shines,
On soft sand, the sunlight’s colour shows it’s late.

All the traveller’s sorrow fades away,
What better place to rest than this?
