With County Official Lu, Give a Farewell Dinner for Palace Official Zhang And Minister Chu Yi, Composed at the Si Ma Seaview Garden

同 卢 明 府 饯 张 郎 中 除 义 王 府 司 马 海 园 作
上 国 山 河 裂
贤 王 邸 蒂 开。
古 人 分 职 去
潘 令 宠 行 来。
冠 盖 趋 梁 苑
江 相 失 楚 才。
预 愁 轩 骑 动
宾 客 散 池 台。
Tong Lu Ming Fu Jian Zhang Lang Zhong Chu Yi Wang Fu Si Ma Hai Yuan Zuo

Shang guo shan he lie
Xian wang di di kai.
Gu ren fen zhi qu
Pan ling chong xing lai.

Guan gai qu liang yuan
Jiang xiang shi chu cai.
Yu chou xuan qi dong
Bin ke san chi tai.

 

With County Official Lu, Give a Farewell Dinner for Palace Official Zhang And Minister Chu Yi, Composed at the Si Ma Seaview Garden

Like mountains and rivers, the last dynasty separated
You have fallen out with the Emperor’s family.
Old friends separate, depart from their positions
Now large imperial banners arrive.

Palace hats and canopies, the entourage finds the enclosed orchard area
From Xiang to Chu we will lose this man, miss his talents.
My previous sorrow, as the curtained carriages begin to move
Guests and travelers disperse to the palace ponds and terraces.

 

Notes:

Xiang to Chu: From the province of Hunan to an area around Hubei Province.

Sima: The Han Dynasty Imperial Biographer and Historian who lost his feet for recording unflattering details about an emperor.
