another translation from the Chinese by Mary Tang on her blog Life is But This

In a still night I cool in a pavilion by the water Over the reeds I see the flicker of a lone firefly In a flash it darts across the silvery pond and Scattered stars surface on the ebb and flow Translated by Mary Tang 鄧許文蘭 (c) 2017

via The Lone Firefly by Bai Yu Chan (1194-1229) — Life is But This 命
