Last Night The Wind And Rain Together Blew - Poem by Li Yu

Last night wind together rain
Curtain curtain sough autumn song
Candle die water-clock exhausted often oh
Rise sit not able calm
Human affairs everywhere like flow water
Consider come a dream float life
Drunk country road sure should often go
This outside not able continue
Last night the wind and rain together blew,
The wall-curtains rustled in their autumn song.
The candle died, the water-clock was exhausted,
I rose and sat, but could not be at peace.
Man's affairs are like the flow of floodwater,
A life is just like floating in a dream.
I should more often go drunken through the country,
For otherwise I could not bear to live.
