A Chinese Poem——Thinking of You

From now on, I'll try to find some articles and post , maybe we can discuss them in our group chat, please do me a favor to leave a massage under the  article which u are interested in ^^
This is the first one, a chinese poem translated into english with the title "Thinking of you". I found it from internet and have no idea if it is precise enough,  if u find sth odd in this translation, you can point it out . i will appreciate it very much^^
Here is the poem:


When will the moon be clear and bright?

With a cup of wine in my hand, I ask the blue sky.

I don't know what season it would be in the heavens on this night.

I'd like to ride the wind to fly home.

Yet I fear the crystal and jade mansions are much too high and cold for me.

Dancing with my moon-lit shadow,

It does not seem like the human world.


The moon rounds the red mansion Stoops to silk-pad doors,

Shines upon the sleepless Bearing no grudge,

Why does the moon tend to be full when people are apart?

People may have sorrow or joy, be near or far apart,

The moon may be dim or bright, wax or wane,

This has been going on since the beginning of time.

May we all be blessed with longevity Though far apart, we are still able to share the beauty of the moon together.
