送友人 · Farewell to a Friend

青山橫北郭 · Blue mountains to the north of the walls,
白水遶東城 · White river winding about them;
此地一為別 · Here we must make separation
孤蓬萬里征 · And go out through a thousand miles of dead grass.
浮雲游子意 · Mind like a floating wide cloud,
落日故人情 · Sunset like the parting of old acquaintances
揮手自茲去 · Who bow over their clasped hands at a distance.
蕭蕭班馬鳴 · Our horses neigh to each others as we are departing.
