《To Li Cao in a Drizzling Evening》 Wei Yingwu

楚江微雨裡  A light drizzle along the Yangzi River
建業暮鐘時  The Evening toll in Nanjing sounds near
漠漠帆來重  Broad sails moving leisurely following the rain

《Night Thoughts on Terrace Tower》  Wei Zhuang

清瑟怨遙夜  A sighing lute laments the night being long
繞弦風雨哀  The string melodies sad as wind and rain

《春怨》 金昌緒 (唐代) __江紹倫英譯

《春怨》  金昌緒(唐代)
《Spring Lament》 Jin Changxu (Tang Dynasty)

打起黃鶯兒  I frighten the orioles off the trees
莫教枝上啼  To stop their songs troubling me
啼時驚妾夢  Dreaming for my love must not be put to rest
不得到遼西  Else I shall not reach Frontier West

《雜詩》無名氏(唐代) __ 江紹倫英譯

《雜詩》無名氏(唐代)
《A Poem》 Anonymous (Tang Dynasty)

近寒食雨草萋萋  Grass grows lush with rains from Cold Food Day
著麥苗風柳咉堤  Wheat stalks wave while willows cast shadows in lake
等是有家歸不得  Concerned that my home is too far for me to return
杜鵑休向耳邊啼  I ask cuckoos not to sing their homeward songs

《春雨》李商隱 (813-858) __ 江紹倫英譯

《春雨》李商隱 《Spring Rain》Li Shang Yin 

悵卧新春白祫衣  Listlessly I lie in early spring wearing white
白門寥落意多違  To the White Gate I searched for you a plight
紅樓隔雨相望冷  Beyond the mists your red chamber is cold to behold
珠箔飄燈獨自歸  Alone I ride my carriage in dim light to go home Continue reading

《春草》張旭  《Spring Grass》Zhang Xu

青草青青萬里餘  Spring grass greens ten thousand li
邊城落日見離居  The sun sets at the frontier town before parting you and me
情知海上三年別  I knew we would be separated for three years overseas
不寄雲間一紙書  I write not a single letter for the clouds to carry Continue reading

《己亥雜詩》龔自珍(1792-1847)__江紹倫英譯

《Poem Random in 1839》 Gong Zi Zhen(1792-1847)

浩蕩離愁白日斜  Grand scale parting grief continues to day’s end
吟鞭東指即天涯  I sing on horseback my whip points to yonder land
落紅不是無情物  Fallen petals show not their loss of vital utility
化作春泥更護花  They integrate with earth to nurture flowers continually

《與諸子登峴山》《Up Mt. Xian with Friends》Meng Hao Ran

人事有代謝  Human affairs go through vicissitudes
往來成古今  They rise and recede so history constitutes

《Singing to Myself》  Qiao Ji (1280-1345)

清風閑坐                           I sit relaxed in cool breezes
白雲高臥                           White clouds lie high at ease
面皮不受時人唾                  To people’s critical views I defy
樂跎跎                              Happily I sigh
笑呵呵                              Laughingly I peal Continue reading
