The Farewell

Chinese art by Kam Wui Mui(甘慧美)

Original Chinese poem by Ooi Ah Bah (黄基涵)

送别
枯柳摇曳晓风寒,
离别心伤见月残,
寂寥蝉声添愁绪,
兰舟催发人断肠。

The Farewell
The weeping willow sways in the cold winds
Its wispy branches trying to weave
As the paleness of the moon blends into the morning sky
Cicadas serenade with a song of grieve
A chorus to the boatman’s call
That separates two hearts with no reprieve
