Su Shi Poem: Riverside Daffodils · Farewell to a Friend – 苏轼《临江仙·送钱穆父》

《临江仙·送钱穆父》是宋代文学家苏轼的词作。此词上片写与友人久别重聚,赞赏友人面对坎坷奔波时的古井心境和秋竹风节;下片切入正题,写月夜与友人分别,抒发了对世事人生的超旷之思。全词一改以往送别诗词缠绵感伤、哀怨愁苦或慷慨悲凉的格调,创新意于法度之中,寄妙理于豪放之外,议论风生,直抒性情,写得既有情韵,又富理趣,充分体现了作者旷达洒脱的个性风貌。

临江仙
送钱穆父

苏轼

一别都门三改火,
天涯踏尽红尘。
依然一笑作春温。
无波真古井,
有节是秋筠。

惆怅孤帆连夜发,
送行淡月微云。
樽前不用翠眉颦。
人生如逆旅,
我亦是行人。

Riverside Daffodils
· Farewell to a Friend

Su Shi

Three years have passed since we left the capital;
We’ve trodden all the way from rise to fall.
Still I smile as on warm spring day.
In ancient well no waves are raised;
Upright, the autumn bamboo’s praised.

Melancholy, your lonely sail departs at night;
Only a pale cloud sees you off in pale moonlight.
You need no songstress to drink your sorrow away.
Life is like a journey;
I too am on my way.

注释:
The poet thinks life is like a journey.

“Riverside Daffodils · Farewell to a Friend” is a lyric by Su Shi, a writer of the Song Dynasty. The first piece of the poem is about reuniting with a friend after a long period of time, and appreciates the friend’s ancient state of mind and autumn bamboo style in the face of rough and tumultuous times; the second piece cuts to the chase, writing about parting with a friend on a moonlit night and expressing his transcendent thoughts on worldly affairs and life. The whole lyric changes the tone of the previous farewell poems, which are lingering and sentimental, sorrowful and sad or generous, and is innovative in its legalism, and sends wonderful reasoning beyond the boldness.
