木蘭花 張先 (990-1078)

Tune: Magnolia       Zhang Xian (990-1078)  江紹倫譯

Dragon Boat glade men of Wu compete to gain speed
On swings fair maidens move gayly to and fro
Women picking vegetables delightfully forget to leave the  mead
Treading on green fields folks freely come and go

With clouds gone the distant hills appear in pale hue
With flutes mute silence returns to the garden pool
Bathed in crystal moonlight the middle court is still
Catkins dance in great numbers leaving not a shadow in view
