To the Tune of Qing and Ping, I of Three (Verses for the Lady Yang) - Li Bai

In clouds, I think of her raiment, in flowers, see her face,
Blooming, beaming by the railing, in Zephyr’s dewy embrace.
‘Tis only on Hills of Emerald, might such a beauty be seen, else
By moonlight at Jasper Terrace, be blest to encounter her grace.

Li Bai (701 - 762) China
Translated by Andrew W.F. Wong (Huang Hongfa)
