Chinese Children’s Songs: The Parting 送别

送别 Songbie/ The Parting

Beautiful master poetry, moving melody, classical chinese scene make this song so poignant…about the sorrow and longing of saying goodbye to those who we hold dear.

長亭外
古道邊
芳草碧連天
晚風拂柳笛聲殘
夕陽山外山
天之涯
地之角
知交半零落
一觚濁酒盡餘歡
今宵別夢寒
長亭外
古道邊
芳草碧連天
晚風拂柳笛聲殘
夕陽山外山
The Parting
Beyond the pavillions
By the old paths
sweet scented grass stretches endlessly to the horizon
Evening breeze caresses the sad flute music
Sun sets beyond the hills…beyond the hills
To the ends of heavens
To the corners of the earth
Best friends are so rare to find
Sharing wine
My friend, do not sleep in the cold tonight
Beyond the pavillions
By the old paths
sweet scented grass stretches endlessly to the horizon
Evening breeze caresses the sad flute music
Sun sets beyond the hills beyond the hills
