生查子 (宋) 朱淑真*

Tune: “Hawthorn Fruit”   Zhu Shuzhen* (ca. 1135-1180 CE)

Tr. YK Chan 陳耀國譯

 

去年元夜时, Last year at Lantern Festival night
花市灯如昼。 Flower mart was lit bright as daylight.
月上柳梢
头, To willow top the moon rising up
约黄昏后。 I met my rendezvous after dusk.

今年元夜时, This year at Lantern Festival night
与灯依旧。 There still are the same old moon and lights.
见去年人, Last year’s rendezvous not in sight
泪湿春衫袖。 My sleeves soaked wet by tears I fight.
