En se séparant d'un voyageur

Language: French (Français) after the Chinese (中文)

Je descendis de cheval; je lui offris le vin de l'adieu,
Et je lui demandai quel était le but de son voyage.
Il me répondit: je n'ai pas réussi dans les affaires du monde;
Je m'en retourne aux monts Nan-chan pour y chercher le repos.
Vous n'aurez plus désormais à m'interroger sur de nouveaux voyages,
Car la nature est immuable, et les nuages sont éternels.
