Fairy Of The 鹊, 喜鹊 Bridge
Among the beautiful clouds,
Over the heavenly river,
Crosses the weaving maiden.
A night of rendezvous,Across the autumn sky.
Surpasses joy on earth.
Moments of tender 爱情 and dream,
So sad to leave the 鹊, 喜鹊 bridge.
Eternal 爱情 between us two,
Shall withstand the time apart
