Gao Pian Poem: A Pavilion in the Mountain on a Summer Day – 高骈《山亭夏日》

山亭夏日

高骈[1]

绿树阴浓夏日长,

楼台倒影入池塘。

水晶帘[2]动微风起,

满架蔷薇[3]一院香。

注释:

[1] 高骈:做过唐朝的淮南节度使。《千家诗》注说:“绿树当夏之时而浓阴稠密,楼台倒影于池塘。光莹如水晶之帘,荡漾不定,知是微风起矣。回首院中,蔷薇满架,香风袭袭,馨馥满庭,岂非夏日清和之淑景乎?”这是一幅夏日风景画,有光有影,有香有味,可见古人善于享受自然之美。

[2] 水晶帘:水晶一般晶莹明亮的帘子。

[3] 蔷薇:花名,夏季开放,颜色有多种。

A Pavilion in the Mountain on a Summer Day

Gao Pian

The summer day’s as long as the green shade’s cool;

The pavilion casts its shadow into the pool.

The gentle breeze ripples the water crystal-clear;

The trellis of roses spreads fragrance far and near.

《山亭夏日》是唐末将领高骈的诗作。此诗写山亭夏日风光,用近似绘画的手法,描绘了绿树阴浓,楼台倒影,池塘水波,满架蔷薇,构成了一幅色彩鲜丽、情调清和的图画。全诗以写景见长,笔法多变。诗人捕捉了微风之后的帘动、花香这些不易觉察的细节,传神地描绘了夏日山亭的悠闲与宁静,表达了作者对夏日乡村风景的热爱和赞美之情。
