马嵬 On Lady Yang

Author: -- 袁枚 Yuan Mei
Sing not of Lady Yang's regret of days gone by!
The Silver River severs on earth as on high.
In Stone Moat Village when the man parted from his wife,
More tears were shed than in the Palace of Long Life.

哭聪娘 Elegy on My Wise Mistress

Author: -- 袁枚 Yuan Mei
I still remember her singing “Mulberry Song5
And the wedding of her beauty with my renown.
In autumn we enjoyed the southern moon for long;
In winter severed by west mountains snowflakes crown.
I relished no rich soup but prepared by her hand;
Our talk from heart to heart gave nothing but delight.
How could the twenty years we passed in southern land
Last not so long as happy dreams of vernal night?
