Well-Known Mr. Pei, Goes Back By Himself to Xiangzhou, Gets a Palace Job Promotion

闻 裴 侍 御 胐 自 襄 州 司 户 除 豫 州 以 投 寄
故 人 荆 府 掾
尚 有 柏 臺 威。
移 職 自 樊 沔
芳 聲 闻 帝 几。
昔 予 卧 林 巷
载 酒 过 柴 扉。
松 菊 无 时 賞
乡 园 懒 欲 归。
Wen Pei Shi Yu Fei Zi Xiang Zhou Si Hu Chu Yu Zhou Yi Tou Ji

Gu ren jing fu yuan
Shang you bai tai wei.
Yi zhi zi fan mian
Fang sheng wen di ji.

Xi yu wo lin xiang
Zai jiu guo chai fei.
Song ju wu shi shang
Xiang yuan lan yu gui.

 

Well-Known Mr. Pei, Goes Back By Himself to Xiangzhou, Gets a Palace Job Promotion

Old friends when you were a Jing River petty official
Still have cypress terraces by sheer strength.
Your duties and position changed, then moved on to Fanmian
I’ve heard of your good reputation when in the imperial capital.

During former days, rest along narrow forest lanes
Bring wine, travel to visit the houses of the poor.
Pine trees and chrysanthemums without the people to enjoy them
And too lazy to take care of your hometown garden.

 

Notes:

Xiangzhou: Maybe a district in Meng’s hometown of Xiangyang in Hubei Province.
