《采桑子·谢家庭院残更立》 纳兰性德

谢家庭院残更立,
燕宿雕粱。
月度银墙,
不辨花丛那辨香?
此情已自成追忆,
零落鸳鸯。
雨歇微凉,
十一年前梦一场。

Picking Mulberries
Nalan Xingde
The yard of my lassie was still there,
Swallows nested on the carved beam.
The walls mirrored the moon white-cream,
Perfumes from blossoms or my girl?—I was let down.
Such passion goes into what to look back,
And also into a pair of loving-birds.
The rain stops but tiny cold, alack,
Eleven years ago, one dream, countless curds!
