Waddell, Helen: Lyrics from the Chinese, v.1, 21 May 2008.
Waddell, Helen (1889-1965)
‘Lyrics from the Chinese’ (1913).
Translations of some classical Chinese poetry.
An example: (written. 1121BCE.)
White clouds are in the sky.
Great shoulders of the hills
Between us two must lie.
The road is rough and far.
Deep fords between us are.
I pray you not to die.
