Qin Guan of in the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
Yonder clouds weaving together
Amidst the flaming stars
Drifting along the heavenlies
Bringing two Lovers from afar
The Lovers’ rendezvous tonight
Adorned the autumn sky
No joy on earth e’en a hundred thousand times
May compare to the Lovers’ meeting eyes
Precious and tender, the Lovers’ love
‘twas like a beautiful beautiful dream
Yet gazing mournfully at the magpie bridge
That will set them apart again
But Eternal Lovers if they were so
Will time apart they not endure?
