Letter to Hermit Ch’iu on an Autumn Night

Wei, Ying Wu (737 A.D.-792 A.D.?)

On this autumn night
I miss you as I walk along the mountain path.
Cool weather reminds me of the poems that we composed together.
The pinecones must be falling on the quiet mountain where you live.
The sound must be dispelling your drowsiness and invite you outdoors.
