后宫词
白居易
泪湿罗巾梦不成,夜深前殿按歌声。
红颜未老恩先断,斜倚薰笼坐到明。

English Translation:
The tears drenched the towel, and it was difficult to fall asleep. In the middle of the night, she heard the sound of singing in the front hall.
Her beautiful appearance has not became old yet , but she has lost the love of the king, leaning against the spice box, and sitting until dawn.
