Nobody interprets a poem exactly the same even in its original language, let alone translating it into another language.  There will always be a certain degree of meaning lost in translation due to the difference in culture, linguistic and metaphysics. 


What I attempted to do is to capture the essence of the original verse as much as possible, while trying to maintain a correct, coherent and understandable version of target language.

<Seeing Off Hsin Chien at Rosemallow Tavern>  




Over the river in Wu, it rained amidst the chilly night.

At dawn you depart, I am like Mountain Chu, all alone despite.

In Luoyang, of me should my friends and families ask,

As impeccable as ice is my heart in a jade flask.
