Translation: Like the snow on the mountain, if the clouds are between the moon. Wen Jun has two meanings, so he will come to a close. Today’s bucket party, Ming Dangou water head. On the gully, the ditch water flows. If you want to marry, you don’t have to worry about it. Would like to have as one people, old age is not way off. What is the bamboo raft? The man is heavy, how to use the money knife!
To a Faithless Husband
Plain as snow on the hill,
Clear as moon among the clouds.
Is your change of heart, they tell me;
And so I’ve come to bid you good-bye.
Today we’ve drunk a measure of wine,
Tomorrow we must part by the canal.
I shall walk beside the royal canal,
Whose waters flow east and are gone,
And wonder if my grief will ever end.
No girl need cry when she’s married.
If her husband is a single-hearted man
Who will not leave her till her hair is white.
Pliant the bamboo fishing rod,
Wet, wet, the tail of the fish.
A man who valued constancy
Would set no store by money!
