Fairy of the Magpie Bridge  


秦观(1049-1100) (七夕)




Fairy Of The Magpie Bridge

Qin Guan ( Eve on the 7th )


The wispy cirrus is floating high;

A shooting comet carries my yearning to the other side,

Crossing the Milky Way in silvery hue, In the autumn wind and dew.

Though we meet once yearly in the sky, It surpasses countless earthly ties.


Tender like water, your passion, Shall fill my dreams, our only liaison.

Retracing steps on the Bridge is a sorrow,

I don’t want to count each day and morrow.

If we join our hearts in this hour of gold,

To the end of time our affection will hold.
