Du Fu Poems: Thinking of Li Bai on a Spring Day – 杜甫《春日忆李白》

春日忆李白

白也诗无敌,

飘然思不群[1]。

清新庾开府[2],

俊逸[3]鲍参军。

渭北春天树,

江东日暮云。

何时一樽酒,

重与细论文[4]?

杜甫与李白在鲁郡东石门分别后,杜甫奔赴长安,公元746或747年杜甫居于长安时作此诗。杜甫在题赠或怀念李白的诗中,总是赞扬备至。此诗中开头四句赞美之热烈,也可看出杜甫对李白非常钦仰。他称赞李白的诗出尘拔俗,清新俊逸,更以古人比之,显示出李白文采的高度。颈联未做任何修饰描绘,看去只是平实的写景,细究之,“渭北”是指诗人所居长安一带,而当时李白正在江东游历,作者将两地景色并列一处,有“碣石潇湘”之意,二人天各一方,牵连着双方的是同样的无限思念。结尾是作者的向往,表达早日重聚的愿望,也是二人惺惺相惜之情的体现。

Thinking of Li Bai on a Spring Day

A poet unequalled by a compeer,

Your fancy flies into celestial sphere.

You freshen up the earth like vernal shower

And beautify the world like brilliant flower.

A towering tree under northern sky,

A floating eastern cloud of sunset dye.

When can we drink together cups of wine

And talk about fine verse and letters fine?

Li Bai (701-762) was one of the greatest poets of the Tang Dynasty.
