A Friend Sends Her Perfumed Carriage - Poem by Li Ching Chao

A friend sends her perfumed carriage
And high-bred horses to fetch me.
I decline the invitation of
My old poetry and wine companion.

I remember the happy days in the lost capital.
We took our ease in the woman's quarters.
The Feast of Lanterns was elaborately celebrated -
Folded pendants, emerald hairpins, brocaded girdles,
New sashes - we competed
To see who was most smartly dressed.
Now I am withering away,
Wind-blown hair, frost temples.
I prefer to stay beyond the curtains,
And listen to talk and laughter
I can no longer share.

    Such a good poem with articulate writing,
    Now I am withering away,
    Wind-blown hair, frost temples.
    I prefer to stay beyond the curtains,
    And listen to talk and laughter
    I can no longer share. (Report) Reply
