Small Boat Travels To a Nearby Village, Get Out and Walk Ashore

 

 

小 舟 游 近 村 舍 舟 步 归
斜 阳 古 柳 赵 家 庄
负 鼓 盲 翁 正 作 场。
死 后 是 非 谁 管 得?
满 村 听 说 蔡 中 郎。
Xiao Zhou You Jin Cun She Zhou Bu Gui

Xie yang gu liu zhao jia zhuang
Fu du mang weng zheng zuo chang.
Si hou shi fei shei guan de?
Man cun chui shui cai zhong lang.

 

Small Boat Travels to a Nearby Village, Get Out and Walk  Ashore

Setting sun, ancient willow trees at the Zhao household village
Old blind man plays the drum for the local show.
After an official dies, whose wind instrument plays a sad song?
The whole village listens to the story of official Cai Yong.

 

Notes:

Zhao:  A northern kingdom (403-222 BC) that included parts of Hebei and Inner Mongolia provinces.

Cai Yong:  (132-192 AD) Eastern Han dynasty intellectual, musician, calligrapher and astronomer.
