Arranging an Appointment With Mengde to Buy Wine and Drink in Idleness For a While

与 梦 得 沽 酒 闲 饮 且 约 后 期
少 时 犹 不 忧 生 计
老 后 谁 能 恓 惜 钱。
共 把 十 千 沽 一 斗
相 看 七 十 欠 三 年。
闲 征 雅 令 穷 经 史
醉 听 清 吟 胜 管 弦。
更 待 菊 黄 家 酝 熟
共 君 一 醉 一 陶 然。
Yu Meng De Gu Jiu Xian Yin Qie Yue Hou Qi

Shao shi you bu you sheng ji
Lao hou shei neng xi xi qian.
Gong ba shi qian gu yi dou
Xiang kan qi shi qian an nian.

Xian zheng ya ling qigong jing shi
Zui ting qing yin sheng guan xian.
Geng dai ju huang jia yun shu
Gong jun yi zui yi tao ran.

 

Arranging an Appointment With Mengde to Buy Wine and Drink in Idleness For a While

Life in early youth is uncertain and carefree
After growing old, who can appreciate wine money?
Pooled together five hundred pounds of vegetables to exchange for one case of wine
Looking at each other, all of us are in our late sixties.

Lounging around inviting input to create refined verse and stories
About enduring rural poverty.
Being intoxicated and listening to the elegant chanting of poems
Superior to bamboo flute music.

Waiting for yellow chrysanthemums to bloom
And for the family wine to ferment.
Together with all for one winefest
And one happy and carefree time.
