Translation by Hsing Chou:
Autumn wind is fresh
Autumn moon is bright
Falling leaves gathered and scattered
Trembling crows perched and startled
When will we meet and be intimate again?
This moment tonight I cannot express my feeling
If you entered my deep mood of longing
You would understand my suffering for yearning
Long yearning recalls long memories
Short yearning has no end
If I knew my thought of you
would be like this so tangled
Wouldn‘t it be better we had never acquainted
Might as well we had never acquainted
