Li Si

Yu Cui-fang 于翠芳 has grown old,
can only go to her grave.
Funeral music played on and on,
becoming a shroud,
big enough to wrap up a life.

Yu Cui-fang, I don’t know her at all.
I’m a young Chinese guy in a small town
Yu Cui-fang must be kin to our landlord,
downstairs they set up a funeral tent.
I just went down to empty the garbage,
all I could see were these three characters.

Yu Cui-fang has grown old,
funeral music played on and on.
I must get up early for my driver’s exam.
