窈窕清禁闥,罷朝歸不同。君隨丞相後,我往日華東。 冉冉柳枝碧,娟娟花蕊紅。故人得佳句,獨贈白頭翁。

Reply to a Friend's Advice

Leaving the Audience by the quiet corridors, Stately and beautiful, we pass through the Palace gates, / Turning in different directions: you go to the West With the Ministers of State. I, otherwise. / On my side, the willow-twigs are fragile, greening. You are struck by scarlet flowers over there. / Our separate ways! You write so well, so kindly, To caution, in vain, a garrulous old man.
