Autumn Day on the Lake
Xue Ying fl. 850

Sailing on the Great at sunset
Mist and waves and everywhere sorrow
Rising and falling events of the past
Who can tell me why they flow east
Qiū Rì Hú Shàng
Xuē Yíng fl. 850

Luò rì Wǔhú yóu,
Yān bō chùchù chóu.
Fú chén qiāngǔ shì,
Shuí yǔ wèn dōng liú.
Translator: Red Pine-Bill Porter 赤松

From the book Poems of the Masters, China's Classic Anthology of Tang and Song Dynasty verse. One of the best, if not "the best", books of general translations of Chinese poetry. Wonderfully detailed notes on each poem and all poems are displayed in the original Chinese.

Translated by Red Pine, published by Copper Canyon Press.
