Translated texts of classic Chinese poetry in Empresses in the Palace
（1）Each year and every year, the blossoms return anew. Each year and every year, the bloom of youth does not.
（2）To capture the heart of my fated lover and cling together till our hair turns gray.
（3）A jade vessel is the symbol of a pure heart.
（4）Beauties of slim waist in the Chu palace are quite graceful and charming. But their youth and beauty will fade away with the years.

（6）Green shoots spring from the shoal and still I am far from home.
（7）The smallest mistake a musician made, Zhou Yu would notice.
（8）Over the high mountain, a distant moon rises. Though the moon is small, it shines clear and bright. The one on my mind is far away from me. One day apart and already my heart is heavy.
（9）I’ve grow careworn for thinking of my lover.
（10）Dance lightly like a startled wild goose. Move gracefully like a soaring dragon. More glorious than the chrysanthemums of autumn. More majestic than the pines of spring.
（11）Just like the moon mantled in light clouds, swinging like a snowflake swirling in the blowing breeze. Gazing from a distance, as bright as the sun rising above the rosy clouds of dawn.

（18）Let us commit ourselves to one another for life, two souls eternally united.
If only we may live in harmonious matrimony, our days filled with peace and joy.
