43. Miscellaneous Poems at Mt. Hakone, 8 Poems (September 1890) – No. 8


其八

恰似泛波鷗
乗閑到處留
溪聲晴夜雨
山色暮天秋
家濕菌生壁
湖明月滿舟
歸期何足意
去路白雲悠

No. 8

Just like a gull floating on the waves,
Takes time out to rest as it goes wherever it goes.
Sounds in the valley, rain on a clear night;
Shades of the mountain, evening sky in autumn.
The house is damp, mold grows on the walls;
Lake bright, moon light fills the boat.
What good is it to worry about the time to go home,
On the road where white clouds roll in the distance.
