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.

〈芙蓉樓送辛漸〉王昌齡

<Seeing Off Hsin Chien at Rosemallow Tavern>  

寒雨連江夜入吳,平明送客楚山孤。

洛陽親友如相問,一片冰心在玉壺。

 

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.
