《柳梢青.春感》劉辰翁(1232-1297) 江紹倫英譯

鐵馬蒙氈  銀花洒淚  春入愁城  笛裡番腔  街頭戲鼓  不是歌聲Liu Chenweng

那堪獨坐青燈  想故國  高台月明  輦下風光  山中歲月  海上心情

《Tune: Green Willow Tendrils. Spring Thoughts》Liu Chenweng (1232-1297)

Armored steeds and woolen Mongol tents heavy
In memory silver lantern lights tears many
This spring the Capital is in captivity
Mongol flutes toot out songs northern
Drums roll at random on streets sudden
They are music heathen Continue reading

1939年秋,陳寅恪、唐篔夫婦與三個女兒避難香港

弦箭文章苦未休  權門奔走喘吳牛
自由共道文人筆  最是文人不自由

《A Poem after Reading Newspapers》Chen Yin Ke(1890-1969)

‘Tis a pity to see flattering essays in the literary scene
People rush to doors of power for comforting inn
Freedom implies rules for writings of quality
Alas how many writers know not what is to be free

《甲申除夕病榻作時目疾頗劇離香港又三年矣 (一九四五年二月)》 Continue reading

《小池》楊萬里(1127-1206) 江紹論英譯

《Small Pond》Yang Wan Li (1127-1206)   

泉眼無聲惜細流  Slowly a spring gushes in silence its source not seen
樹陰照水愛晴柔  Tree branches cast shadows in the water softly beam
小荷才露尖尖角  A lotus shoot emerges above water its bud gleams
早有蜻蜓立上頭  A dragonfly hurries to stand on it to survey the scene

《憶羅浮》古成之(968-1038) 江紹論英譯

《憶羅浮》古成之《Remembering Mt. Luofo》Gu Cheng Zhi (968-1038)

憶昔羅浮最上峰  I recall the highest peak of Mt. Luofo in days old
當年曾得寄仙踪  Up there dwelled immortals their presence known
憑闌月色出滄海  By the rail I watch the moon emerging from the sea
欹枕秋聲入古松  On my pillow I hear autumn winds amid old pines hiss Continue reading

《糖多令.重過武昌》劉過 (1154-1206) 江紹論英譯

《Tune: Sugar Rich Song_Passing Through Wu Chong Again》Liu Guo (1154-1206)

蘆葉滿汀州  The marshland is filled with thriving reeds
寒沙帶淺流  Cool sands underlie the shallow water’s leads
二十年重過南樓  It’s been twenty years since I last visited the south tower
柳下繫船猶未穩  My boat tied to the willows it moors not proper
能幾日  In days few
又中秋  The Mid-autumn Festival will be here Continue reading

《揚州官滿辭后土題玉立亭》宋.崔與之(1158-1239) 江紹倫英譯

《揚州官滿辭后土題玉立亭》《On Retirement from Office at Yangzhou》

天上人間一樹花  Humanity and the universe is one flowering tree
五年於此駐高牙  For five years I led the local office in this community
不隨紅藥矜春色  There is no amusement with spring blooms and gaiety
爲愛霜筠耐歲華  Like bamboo greens I respond to calls of natural duty Continue reading

《水調歌頭_題劍閣》
《Tune: Prelude to Water Melody_For the Sword Gate Tower》Cui Yu Zhi (1158-1239)

萬里雲間戍 Conflicts disturb ten thousand li of plateau terrain
立馬劍門關 At the Sword Gate Pass I sit on my steed to survey the ruins
亂山極目無際 Hills in varying sizes seen in a space with no limit
直北是長安 To the north our Capital stands in jeopardy Continue reading

《雙松》《暮春》《回雁》余靖 (1000-1064)__ 江紹倫英譯

《雙松》《Double Pines》 Yu Jing (1000-1064)

自古詠連理  Poets since old like to sing for diverse vegetation growths
多爲豔陽吟  And the brilliance of colorful sky shines they loaf
誰知抱高節  Those who hold fast to their integrity
生處亦同心  They group together into a like-mind community Continue reading

《落葉詩_二首》 黃釗(1788-1853) 江紹倫英譯

《Falling Leaves_Two Poems》 Huang Zhao (1788-1853)

(1)
清晨鹿跡冷蒼苔  At clear morning deer footprints on moss path cool
殘籜份份卷作堆  Dry leaves many twirl together to pile up full
萬點烏鴉盤陣起  Crows take to the air in ten thousand dots
四山風雨逼秋來  Rains and winds in four hills delay autumn not Continue reading

《登大容山》《簑衣渡夜泊》文祚閑 (1812-1861) 江紹倫英譯

《登大容山》《Climbing Mt. Darong》Wen Zho Xian (1812-1261)

一峯相送一峯迎  Leaving one peak another welcomes us in
千里崎岖路不平  A thousand li of bumpy roads therein
峭壁泉声晴亦雨  A series of springs gush beneath sharp cliffs creating drizzles
悬崖云影暗还明  Cloud shadows between mountain crags now dark now seen Continue reading
