Tune: “Song of Divination”
Parting with Bao Haoran
A stretch of rippling water is the beaming eye;
The arched brows around are mountains high.
If you ask where the wayfarer is bound,
Just see where beaming eyes and arched brows are found.
I’ve just seen spring depart.
And now again with you I’ll part.
If in the South you o’ertake the spring day,
Be sure not to let it slip away.
