早见日中天 晚靠夕阳红 冬临耳当顺 岁长欲从心
昏黄驯白辉 暗里耀天涯 或曰人胜天 終归大自然
银光回反昼 太阴悦眼前 明日永不多 自负成蹉跎
斗柄正北移 银河非寒冰 心雄非万丈 他山无汗青
Let the sun shine in
during winter to savour its lovingness.
Its radiance thaws the heart
and invigorates you with compassion.
Like gentle tendrils solar rays
cuddle up the slender trunk, mending where it is sore.
Its warmth curls your hair more,
darkening it and rekindling youthful lore.
Outdoors it melts the frost
that slowly encroaches like moss,
chilling your conscious mind.
Let the sun shine in and reflect back to the frost.
Let not the sun shine in during summer time
when it is too hot to mime.
So scalding it’d numb your soul,
just keep the shutters down to block its tentacles.
Let the sun shine in spring and fall,
as it brightens the days you recall.
Drive away the rain and fog,
which are too much to be at odds.
May the sun always rise on Golden Pond,
and bring reflections on the water that meanders.
Punting on the way singing an evensong,
for sure I will hear it when you come on board.
