View in Spring

The state broken, its mountain and revers remain,
the day turns spring, deep with plants and trees.
Stirred by the time, flowers, sprinkling tears,
hating parting, birds, alarm the heart.
Beacon fires stretch through three months,
a letter from family worth ten thousand in silver.
I've ssratched my white hair even shorter,
pretty much to the point where it won't hold hatpin.

杜甫の全訳はStephen Owenが初めてだが、セレクションとしては、詩人Sam Hamill*4によるFacing the Snow: Visions of Tu Fu *5、Burton Watson*6によるThe Selected Poems of Du Fuがあるという。また、Erwin von Zach*7杜甫の全詩を独訳している。
