秋風辭 (漢武帝) 劉徹 (156-87 BC)

秋風起兮白雲飛  草木黃落兮雁南歸
蘭有秀兮菊有芳   懷佳人兮不能忘
泛樓船兮濟汾河   橫中流兮揚素波
簫鼓鳴兮發棹歌   歡樂極兮哀情多
少壯幾時兮奈老何

Song of Autumn Wind
(
Emperor of Han Dynasty) Liu Che (156-87 BC)    江紹倫譯

Autumn winds rise to help white clouds glide
When yellow grass withers and sends geese southward fly
Orchids display their elegance and mums sweet scent
My love how I pine for you when you are out of sight

On a bark to cross the river I hurry to be with you
At midstream ripples turn white and keep my boat behind
The rhythm of drums and pipes sound the rowing song
Excitement when spent subsides as sad feelings rise

The time of youth will cede as old age comes in sight
