Thoughts On A Quiet Night

I first came across the well-known Tang Poem ‘jing ye si’ by Li Bai (701-762) when I was a kid, learnt it in lower secondary school, and only now try to translate it into English:

 

Thoughts On A Quiet Night

 

Glowing moonlight over the bed,

Like early snowflakes on the ground;

Observing the bright moon above,

Thinking of homeland far away.
