Wang Wei: Autumn Evening in My Mountain Abode~ 《山居秋暝》 王维 with English Translations


《山居秋暝》 王维


Autumn Evening in My Mountain Abode

Blank hills look pure as a recent rain refines,
As dusk is falling autumn is felt in the bones.
A silvery moon is shining through the pines,
The limpid brooks are gurgling o’er the stones.
Bamboos laugh out as girls from washing whirl,
The lotus stirs where boats out fishing curl.
The scents of spring may go; that’s Nature’s will.
This season here attracts the noble still.
