A Farewell To Meng Hao-jan On His Way To Yang-chou by Li Po (Li Bei)

You have left me behind, old friend, at Yellow Crane Terrace,
On your way to visit Yang-chou in the misty month of flowers;
Your sail, a single shadow, becomes one with the blue sky,
Till now I see only the river, on its way to heaven.

translated by Witter Bynner & Kiang Kang-hu
