Alone, I sit serene within a bamboo grove,
At ease, I strum the lute and hum a song.
Unknown into the forest deep I’ll rove
Until the shining moon has sung along.

竹里館
 
獨坐幽篁裡,
彈琴復長嘯。
深林人不知,
明月來相照。

Bamboo Village Building
 
Alone sitting serene bamboo within,
Play lute repeatedly long whistle.
Deep forest man not known,
Bright moon come together shine.
