《沁园春.雪》1936年2月 毛泽东(1893~1976)

《沁园春.雪》(1936) 《Tune: Qin Garden Spring .Snow》

北国风光 The scenic charm of northern country
千里冰封 A thousand li of land frozen in ice
万里雪飘 Ten thousand li of wilderness in snowdrift
望长城内外 North and south of the Great Wall
惟余莽莽 Rests an uncultivated domain looming
大河上下 The Big River pours from its source to sea
顿失滔滔 Its winding course set on silent rolling
山舞银蛇 Mountain ranges dance like slithering silver snakes
原驰蜡象 The highland roams a spectre of elephant herds charging
欲与天公试比高 All contend with the sky for stature
须晴日 On a clear sunny day
看红装素裹 Cladding in pure white and radiant red
分外妖娆 The world’s natural beauty finds no match

江山如此多娇 To a motherland of such awesome enchantment
引无数英雄竞折腰 Her sons and daughters bow to offer heroic feats
惜秦皇汉武 Alas regret the pioneer emperors of Qin and Han
略输文采 Showed a lack of literary grace
唐宗宋祖 The hailed leaders of the great dynasties Tang and Song
稍逊风骚 Had not much poetic imagination in their souls
一代天骄 And the Great Genghis Khan
成吉思汗 Favoured son of Heaven in his day
只识弯弓射大雕 Loved too much to bow down hawks for gaiety
俱往矣 Gone are these heroes of history
数风流人物 When you seek men of abiding respect and true worth
还看今朝 Meet them today
