Jiu Bian and Song Yu Bei Qiu #3:
I only lament the chills of autumn (poem 3, line 2)


(01.29 to 02.06 in the recording)

--

Heaven divides the seasons equally, but only the autumn brings sadness. Decaying nature reminds me of my own decay. Times are evil so I am neglected, and I will probably not have a gentle old age.
