  1. I don’t think this captures it :-\
    My rather free version would be:

    You ask me when will we be reunited.
    But, ah my dear, while rains fall night by night
    Around Mount Ba, and flood waters rise
    Ours not to know when we two, side by side
    May watch the sunset and beguile the night
    Reminiscing about those Mount Ba rains.
