《茗飲》元好問(1190-1257) __ 江紹倫英譯

《Tea Drinks》Yuan Wen Hao(1190_1257)

宿酲未破厭觥船  Drunk through the night I dislike the rocking boat
紫筍分封入曉煎  I brew the Purple Tips at dawn to fill my bowl
槐火石泉寒食後  Charcoal fires boil the spring water after Cold Meal Fest
鬢絲禪榻落花前  My scanty hairs mix with petals on my Zen bed rest Continue reading

《夢歸》《鷓鴣天·薄命妾辭》《人月圓·卜居外家東園》元好問 (1190-1257) __ 江紹倫英譯

《夢歸》《Dreaming for Home》Yuan Haowen (1190-1257)

憔悴南冠一楚囚  In languish I am now in prison
歸心江漢日東流  To return home my wish flows like a river incessant
青山歷歷鄉關夢  Hills remain green I see my homeland in my dream
黃葉蕭蕭風雨秋  Leaves turn yellow under severe rains and winds

亂來無淚可供愁  When confused grief could not be washed away with tears
殘年兄弟相逢在  In these destitute years we brothers rejoice to meet again
隨分齏鹽萬事休  Happily we share salted veggies nothing we care to gain  Continue reading

直教生死相許Engaging couples through life and death Continue reading
