Chinese Poem: The Frontier Song

塞下曲
盧綸
月黑雁飛高  單于夜遁逃
欲將輕騎逐  大雪滿弓刀

 

The Frontier Song

Lu Lun

Wild geese fly high in the moonless dark sky
the leader of the Hun tries to escape
The light cavalry carry bows and swords
covered with snow even before the chase

(poem translated by Wei Jia
and edited by Chris Parker)

塞下曲
卢纶
月黑雁飞高  单于夜遁逃
欲将轻骑逐  大雪满弓刀

(simplified Chinese)

Sāi xià qǔ

lú lún

yuè hēi yàn fēi gāo, chán yú yè dùn táo.
yù jiāng qīng qí zhú, dà xuě mǎn gōng dāo.
