Sent North on a Rainy Night
Li Shangyin

You ask return time not be time
Ba hill night rain rise autumn pool
When with together trim west window candle
Same speak Ba hill night rain time
You ask me what time I'll return, but I cannot give a time,
The rain in the hills of Ba at night overflows the autumn pools.
When can we trim the candle together by the western window,
And talk together of the rain in the hills of Ba at night?
