鳳栖梧 II (宋)柳永(987~1054)

佇倚危樓風细细
望極春愁
黯黯生天際
草色烟光残照里
無言誰會憑闌意。

擬把疏狂圖一醉
對酒當歌
强樂還無味

衣带漸寬終不悔
為伊消得人憔悴

Tune: Phoenix Perch on Parasol                   江紹倫譯

I stand alone on the balcony in light breeze
To confront spring sorrows
Parting grief loom in the horizon a dark gleam
At sunset smoke rises where grass is green
With no word to tell who would know why on these rails I lean

‘Tis my intend to dare getting drunk in a wink
For cups of wine I sing
Strained mirth will relief not bring

I regret not my waist-band loosens as it must be
Languish I accept when it comes to loving thee
