To Be An Official - Poem by Luo Zhihai

★ To Be an Official

☆ Poetry by Han Yu (768-824, Tang Dynasty, China)
☆ Translation by Luo Zhihai (1954-, China)


Lost the government post and short of money
Difficult to be an official
Both things are harmful
Often trouble taken all the life
Return my home at night
Melancholy from a sigh
Abandoned in the world
Not only today since ancient times

◆ Chinese Text

★ 从仕

☆ 韩愈 诗


居闲食不足
从仕力难任
两事皆害性
一生恒苦心
黄昏归私室
惆怅起叹音
弃置人间世
古来非独今
