Beneath The Moon, Before The Steps ( - Poem by Li Yu

Oriental cherry fall all steps front moon
Appear bed sorrow rest on smoke enveloped
Distant like last year this day regret also same
Two braids not in order cloud wan and sallow
Tears wet red wipe chest
What place seem yearn suffer
Gauze window drunk dream in
Beneath the moon, before the steps, all cherry blossom has fallen,
Enwreathed in smoke, she looks sorrowful lying in bed.
She feels the same regret today as one long year ago.
Both braids like cloud in disarray, her face is wan and sallow,
The crimson corset wet from wiping tears.
But what's the reason why she suffers so?
She lies in a drunken dream before the window.
