(唐)杜牧

清明時節雨紛紛,路上行人欲斷魂。

借問酒家何處有?牧童遙指杏花村。

Qingming

Du Mu

A drizzling rain falls like tears on the Mourning Day;

The mourner’s heart is breaking on his way.

Where can a winehouse be found to drown his sadness?

A cowherd points to Almond Flower Village in the distance.

About the Poet

Du Mu (杜牧803—852) was a leading Chinese poet of the late Tang Dynasty. His courtesy name was Muzhi (牧之), and sobriquet Fanchuan (樊川).

He was born in Chang’an (modern Xi’an) into a elite family whose fortunes were declining. He passed the jinshi (”Presented Scholar”) level of the imperial civil service examination in 827 at the age of 25, and went on to hold many official positions in various locales through the years. However, he never achieved a high rank, perhaps due to enemies made in a factional dispute in 835. He was appointed to the office of Secretariat Drafter shortly before his death.
