偶 成
十 五 年 前 花 月 底
相 從 曾 賦 賞 花 詩。
今 看 花 月 渾 相 似
安 得 情 懷 似 舊 時?
Ou Cheng

Shi wu nian qian hua yue di
Xiang cong ceng fu shang hua shi.

Jin kan hua yue hun xiang si
An de qing huai si jiu shi?

 

Written By Chance

Fifteen years ago we sat under the moon and flowers
We enjoyed composing flower poems in alternating lines.

Now we can feel ourselves like the flowers and full moon
How can we ever retrieve emotions like these former times?
