心灰尽、有发未全僧。 风雨消磨生死别，似曾相识只孤檠， 情在不能醒。 摇落后，清吹那堪听。 淅沥暗飘金井叶，乍闻风定又钟声， 薄福荐倾城。
------------ Gary's English translation ---------------- 《忆江南》
心灰尽、 The fire in my heart has turned into ashes. 有发未全僧。 Except my hairs are not shaved, now I am almost like a monk. 风雨消磨生死别， The wind and rain had already worn me out, and then, the live and death parting. 似曾相识只孤檠， The scene seems to be a deja vu, but now only a lonely lamp is still there. 情在不能醒。 My love is still with her, yet I cannot wake up to the reality that she's gone forever. 摇落后， After it blew off the withered leaves, 清吹那堪听。 how can I bear to hear the sound of the autumn wind? 淅沥暗飘金井叶， Unnoticeably, among the sound of dripping rain, the plane tree leaves are falling. 乍闻风定又钟声， The wind just barely ceased then suddenly the temple bell started knelling. 薄福荐倾城。 My luck was short-lived that fate gifted me with the most beautiful lady, then fate took her away...
