《食罷》白居易(772-846) __江紹倫英譯

《食罷》白居易(772-846)
《After a Meal》Bai Juyi(772-846)

食罷一覺睡  Taking a nap after a meal
起來兩甌茶  Getting up later and have two bowls of tea
舉頭看日影  I raise my head to watch the sun light
已复西南斜  Toward the southwest the sun has reclined
樂人惜日促  Optimists feel the days pass in a hurry
憂人厭年賒  Pessimists complain of remaining years
無憂無樂者  Those who are carefree for being worry or happy
長短任生涯  Ride on life’s ups and downs with natural ease
