Zuì Huā Yīn
A Cí (poetic lyrics of Song Dynasty) about Double Ninth Festival
Drunk in Blossom Shade
Bó wù nóng yún chóu yǒng zhòu
Thin mist and thick clouds shroud the long day in melancholy;
Ruì nǎo xiāo jīn shòu
Perfume scatters from a golden beast-shaped censer.
Jiā jié yòu Chóng yáng
A holiday once again, it is Double Ninth;
Yù zhěn shā chú
through embroidered pillows and gauze veils,
Bàn yè liáng chū tòu
In the middle of the night, coolness begins to come through.
Dōng lí bǎ jiǔ huáng hūn hòu,
At the eastern fence, one raises one's cup after dusk;
Yǒu àn xiāng yíng xiù.
the fragrance of chrysanthemum blossom fills one's sleeves.
Mò dào bù xiāohún
Who would not say that this is overwhelming?
Lián juǎn xīfēng
In the westerly wind that lifts the curtains
Rén bǐ huánghuā shòu
One is thinner than the yellow flowers.
