Zhang Xian Poem: Pride of the Fishermen V Farewell to Cheng Gongbi – 张先《渔家傲·和程公辟赠别》

Zhang Xian – 张先

渔家傲
和程公辟赠别

张先
巴子城头青草暮,
巴山重叠相逢处。
燕子占巢花脱树,
杯且举,
瞿塘水阔舟难渡。
天外吴门清霅路。
君家正在吴门住。
赠我柳枝情几许。
春满缕,
为君将入江南去。

Pride of the Fishermen
V Farewell to Cheng Gongbi

Zhang Xian
By western city wall at dusk the grass grows green,
The western hills on hills where we met form a screen.
The swallows in the nest, flowers fall from the tree.
We drink wine cup in hand,
It’s hard to sail between the cliffs for our homeland
Your home at citygate and mine by riverside,
They are not separated by a river wide.
How deep your love to break a willow twig for me
It’s filled with spring,
A sprig to your home on the southern shore I’ll bring.

注释:
The poet bids farewell to a friend of his native place.
