The Bamboo Pavilion – Wang Wei

I sit alone in the bamboo grove
Strumming the qin and whistling.
Deep in the grove no one sees,
Only the bright moon shining.

du zuo you huang li,
alone sit secluded bamboo grove in,

tan qin fu zhang xiao.
strum [zither]again long whistle

shen lin ren bu zhi,
Deep forest men not know,

ming yue lai xiang zhao.
bright moon come appear shine.
