Love, A for ever Topic

Hello, everyone!


As the title says, love is a for ever topic.


I would like you guys talk about your favorite poems about love and share them with us.


Also, it is best that you write a poem about love. I will give the first try.


Welcome to come here!


This is a poem (if it can be called a poem, haha )written in the midnight when I was suffering from insomnia on May, 17th.


漫漫长夜,无心入眠。I can't fall asleep in the boundless night,
朝起夕斜,又是流年。Sun rises and falls as time goes by.
日日一复,谁问可怜?Life is repeated everyday, who cares me?
愁若水逝,何似人间!Sadnesses floats like water, so called heaven in the earth.


Is this a poem about love?

Oops, I can't imagine if you are a professional translator, how wonderful your translation will be!

I never translated a poem until a few years back.  The first one was difficult.  However, with help from others, I grew confident and I have no qualm in going for the most difficult.  Like 老子 says, 千里之行,始於足下.  Just be brave and thick skinned.  Brook, you will succeed :)

In being a good translator, someone said you only need to be good in the source language but a master in the target language.  I wish I can be said of the other way.  Hence I am no professional translator :(

You are absolutely right!

There is hope in the last two lines. Your translations are 100 times better than mine. Like them!
