李白 《行路难》

金樽清酒斗十千,
玉盘珍羞直万钱。
停杯投筯不能食,
拔剑四顾心茫然。
欲渡黄河冰塞川,
将登太行雪满山。
闲来垂钓碧溪上,
忽复乘舟梦日边。
行路难,行路难,
多歧路,今安在?
长风破浪会有时,
直挂云帆济沧海。

Travelling Is Hard
Li Bai

Clear wine in golden goblets, ten thousand cash a cup,
And costly delicacies on jade platters.
Yet I spurn drinking and toss away my chopsticks,
Sword in hand, restless, I wonder what to do.
I want to cross the Yellow River, but it’s ice-bound;
I want to climb the Taihang Mountains, but they’re snow-covered.
So idly I fish by a limpid stream,
Dreaming of sailing towards the sun.
Travelling is hard! Travelling is hard!
So many crossroads; which to choose?
One day I’ll skim the waves, blown by the wind,
With sails hoisted high, across the vast ocean.
