Sick and Restless At Night, I Get Up And Walk In The Moonlight

by Yang Wan-Li

Yang Wanli


I don't ask to be one of the three ministers;
there's enough to eat - who needs a lot of money?
I just want to lead a happy life
enjoying the moon and the wind.


The summer days are hot, but tonight it is cool,
even cooler at two that it was at midnight.
Dew drips from the whiskers of the jade rabbit;
winds rise from the waves of the Milky Way.
