• 《無情月》 The loveless moon
The loveless moon is set in the inexorable sky.
When I think of you, I am loth that the moon should shine on my lonely sleep.
O Moon! At times thou dost dwindle; at times thou art full again:
Why then does my spouse, once gone, harden ever his heart towards me?
Plaintively I entreat the old man in the moon to come to my succour:
Even, when shining upon my lord, to ask him a question and see how he will retort.
If his heart is awry, and he remembers me no more,
Bid him lay hand on heart and look up to heaven.
Are you a man? Then you should not be so fickle of heart and mood.
You remember not the present, remember at least the past.
My heart is all day long racked in suspense because of my lord.
Tell me, how can I rival the graceful maiden in the moon?
If, when we two meet, I could see his heartless face as easily as does the moon,
I should not fear the length of the road:
Certes, I should go ask him plainly concerning his heart’s purpose,
Lest I vainly flaunt in this mortal world a pretence of married love.
