229. Farewell to Cui
Traversing mountains thin and deep
And on through hills and dales revered;
For just a day you’ll be a man
Of Eden, land of love and cheer.
I don't know the road to Guizhou, but still I send off a former lord
Who's set to travel a thousand miles across the cries of forest apes,
To flutter about like a bird that flies throughout the great five lakes.
The rulers know nothing, the mountains are deep with vulgar hordes:
He's stuck in a foreign land, unable to move for fear of broken brakes.
