    David H. Lee translated into English
    《其實我是你熟悉的陌生人》

    高牆外是車馬喧囂的紅塵,
    隔牆暮色掩映著皇家園林。
    從燈影搖紅的亭台高處,
    誰撥響了千年的七弦琴?
    曾經的盛世灰飛煙燼,
    琴聲穿越歷史的重門。
    在此靜心的一代天子,
    他的琴聲可有自己的知音?

    異鄉來的游吟詩人,
    是什麼觸響了你心底的琴?
    你的憂傷融入暗夜裡,
    隱秘猶如藏身水中的紅鱗。
    人有七情弦有七根,
    你在聽琴還是傾聽自己的靈魂?
    泠泠徹夜,無須賞音者,
    琴只須彈給自己的心。

    咫尺和天涯是同樣的距離,
    仙境和凡塵也只是一牆之分。
    談笑坐在你身旁的紅衣客,
    其實是你熟悉的陌生人。
    在你看不見的地方,
    彈一張無弦的素琴。
    匆匆駐足的過客
    你可曾聽見它的聲音?

    “I am Your Most Familiar Stranger”

    Outside the high wall,
    carriages clamor noisily over the dust of the mundane,
    Inside the high wall,
    twilight casts its soft warmth on the imperial garden.
    From the pavilion up high,
    tinted by the undulating crimson shadows of the lanterns,
    Who plucked the millennium-old, seven-string qin?!
    The prosperity of a bygone era had departed like the windy dust,
    yet the sound of qin now transcends across the doors of history.
    An octogenarian emperor once mediated and played here,
    did he know someone who understood his qin?

    Oh, poet from afar, who has come to recite,
    what resonates the qin of your inner soul?
    Your sorrow immerses deep in the dark night,
    hidden at the bottom of sea like a secluded beast.
    Man has seven emotions, as qin has seven strings;
    are you listening to the qin or to your soul?

    Find a cold night, with no one else around,
    play the qin solely for your own heart.
    Near and far are the same distance,
    heaven and earth, just a wall apart.
    The smiling, red-robed guest sitting next to you,
    is, in fact, your most familiar stranger—
    Playing an unadorned qin without strings
    at a place you cannot see.
    Oh, guest passing by so hastily,
    have you not heard its sound?
