Wang Bo: Bidding Deputy Magistrate Du Farewell ~ 《送杜少府之任蜀州》 王勃 with English Translations


《送杜少府之任蜀州》 王勃


Bidding Deputy Magistrate Du Farewell
Wang Bo

The capital and palace are guarded by the land of three Qin kingdoms,
In the distance the Five Ferries are screened by wind and mist.
Now comes the time for us to bid farewell to each other,
And we will both be officials away from home on duty.
So long as we remain bosom friends in our heart of hearts,
We’ll still feel like neighbours despite the distance apart.
So don’t let us shed silly tears like youngsters
At that last moment when we both wave goodbye.
