紅梅 蘇軾(1037-1101)

怕愁貪睡獨開遲
自恐冰容不入時
故作小红桃杏色
尚餘孤瘦雪霜姿
寒心未肯随春態
酒暈無端上玉肌
詩老不知梅格在
更看綠葉與青枝

To Pink Mume             Su Shi (1037-1101)                江紹倫譯

You blossom late fearing grief and loving to sleep
With an icy face you are concerned for being out of date
With touches of apricot and peach rouges your face so neat
In frost or snow your lonely grace is ever on vivid display
Your heart calm and cool you will not flirt like spring
Your dimple appears naturally to enliven your jade-like face
Poets know not how to fully describe your amazing grace
They say your beauty is seen amid branches and green foliage
