Only The Bright Moon Shines Upon Me

Deep in the woods Only the bright moon Shines upon me -Wang Wei

Translation:
No one knows I am
Deep in the woods
Only the bright moon
Shines upon me
-Wang Wei

 

The full poem by Wang Wei

In a Retreat Among the Bamboos

Sitting alone among
the dim bamboos,
I play my lute and
Whistle long notes.
No one knows I am
deep in the woods.
Only the bright moon,
shines upon me.
