《千塔主人》 王维

逆旅逢佳节,
征帆未可前。
窗临汴河水,
门渡楚人船。
鸡犬散墟落,
桑榆荫远田。
所居人不见,
枕席生云烟。

Halfway Visit

It’s festive day, but alas! I must stay
At the inn, and the sail has to wait on the way.
This window looks on the stream; at the gate
Are sailing boats for a distant state.
Dogs and chickens roam the lanes,
And elms and mulberries shade the plains.
But where’s his abode, yet hidden from view?
Or can it be veiled in a rosy hue?
