Up to the top, I loved to go
For WCP: Up and Cee’s Fun Fotos: Stairs
When young I never did know the taste of woe or sorrow,
Up to the top (floor), I loved to go;
Up to the top (floor), I loved to go—
For to compose new verses, I feigned my sorrow and woe.
Now sorrow and woe I’ve tasted, and the bitterness withal,
To speak, I wish, and yet I stall;
To speak, I wish, and yet I stall—
O how fair though chilly this autumn! I say, after all.
by Xin S Ji in the Song Dynasty (960 to 1127 AD). Translated by Andrew W.F. Wong
