Smutek

Language: Czech (Čeština) after the Chinese (中文)

Žil v Liangu král kdys, vznešený a mocný,
palác jeho býval otevřen vždy hostům...,
u dvora pak velcí kvetli básníkové.

Minulo již tisíc roků, ba snad více,
jedna věž tam zbývá jenom v zříceninách,
jako stopa teskná dávné velikosti.

Ticho vládne kolem, rostliny tam bují,
smutku dech tam vstává, tisíc mil se šíří v dál.
