How long will the full moon appear?
Wine cup in hand, I ask the sky.
I do not know what time of the year
'Twould be tonight in the palace on high.
Riding the wind, there I would fly,
Yet I'm afraid the crystalline palace would be
Too high and cold for me.
I rise and dance, with my shadow I play.
On high as on earth, would it be as gay?
Through gauze-draped window soft to shed
Why then when people part, is the oft full and bright?
Men have sorrow and joy; they part or meet again;
There has been nothing perfect since the olden days.
So let us wish that man
Will live long as he can!
Though miles apart, we'll share the beauty she displays.
How rare the moon, so round and clear!
With cup in hand, I ask of the blue sky,
I want to fly home, riding the air,
But fear the ethereal（天上的） cold up there,
Dancing to my shadow,
I feel no longer the mortal tie.
She rounds the vermilion（朱砂） tower,
Stoops to silk-pad doors,
Shines on those who sleepless lie.
Shine upon our parting, reunion deny?
But rare is perfect happiness--
The moon does wax, the moon does wane,
And so men meet and say goodbye.
I only pray our life be long,
And our souls together heavenward fly!
