Divert Myself From Sorrow (The First) - Poem by Luo Zhihai

★ Divert Myself from Sorrow (The First)

☆ Poetry by Yuan Zhen (779-831, Tang Dynasty, China)
☆ Translation by Luo Zhihai (1954-, China)

You like favour least niece of Xie Gong
From you married me, a poor scholar, nothing was good
Seeing me without clothing, you searched of the trunk
No money to buy wine, I begged you to pull off your gold hairpin
Cooking wild vegetable and bean leaves to stay our hunger
Leaves of the age-old Chinese scholar tree as firewood
Today my salary is over one hundred thousand yuan
Now release your soul from purgatory and consecrate vegetarian meal for you

Note: 1) You like favour least niece of Xie Gong - Prime Minister Xie An, Dongjin Dynasty, China. His favour least niece is Xie Daoyun.
2) Qian Lou, a poor scholar of the Warring States period. Author Yuan Zhen as poor as Qian Lou.
