Song of Divination
· Par with Bao Haoran to the East of Zhe Jiang

Wang Guan
The rippling stream’s a beaming eye;
The arched brows are mountains high.
May I ask where you’re bound?
There beam the eyes with arched brows around.
Spring’s just made her adieu,
And now I’ll part with you.
If you overtake Spring on southern shore,
Oh, stay with her once more!

注释:
This lyric has personified the parting scene without the usual parting grief.

《卜算子·送鲍浩然之浙东》是北宋词人王观创作的一首词。这是一篇送别友人之作。上片用“眼波”“眉峰”比喻浙东山水,表明行人去处是令人向往的山清水秀之地;下片点明送别是在暮春时节,写离别思绪和对友人的深情祝愿,叮嘱友人“千万和春住”。此词写送别友人却不落惜别伤感的窠臼,而是通过描写别时的景物和离人的行踪,祝愿友人永葆青春,表现出两人之间深长的友情。全词构思新颖,比喻巧妙,又语带双关,含而不露,写得妙趣横生,耐人寻味。
