Cow sheep move down slowly
Each self shut wicker door
Wind moon from clear night
River hill not homeland
Stone spring flow dark cliff
Grass dew drip autumn root
Head white lamp brightness inside
What need flower embers flourish
The cows and sheep are moving slowly down,
Each villager has shut his wicker gate.
The wind and moon disturb the clear night,
This landscape of rivers and hills is not my homeland.
A spring flows from the stones of a darkening cliff,
The autumn dew drips on the grass's roots.
My white head is within the brightness of the lamp,
What need for the flower to flourish so?
