采桑子 (宋) 歐陽修 (1007-1072)

輕舟短棹西湖好
綠水逶迤
芳草長堤
隐隐笙歌處處随

無風水面琉璃滑
不覺船移
微動漣漪
驚起沙禽掠岸飛

Tune: Picking Mulberries                  Ouyang Xiu (1007-1072)       江紹倫譯

On a light boat pedaled by short oars the West Lake is fair
Crystal water white and clear
Beyond the blue grass appears the long dike
Light music echoes hitter and thither delight

Smooth as a mirror is the lake when no breeze blowing
One feels the boat not moving
Ripples their shimmering flare
Frightened water birds skim over the winding shore
