By Wang Wei (701 - 761 AD)， translated by Sun Dayu, 1981.
When slanting sunbeams shine on the village scene,
To the lanes retreated return all cattle and sheep.
Some rustics aged expecting the shepherd boys
Are waiting with their staffs at the brushwood doors.
Pheasants clang and wheat stalks come to ear,
The mulberry leaves grow scant as silkworms sleep.
Farm hands now come up with their hoes on shoulders,
Seeing one another, fall they to talk with cheer.
In the air of all such leisurely good humour,
I yearn for a quiet hermit's life free and dear.
