Liu Jisun Poem: Written on a Screen – 刘季孙《题屏》

题屏

刘季孙[1]

呢喃[2]燕子语梁间,

底事[3]来惊梦里闲[4]?

说与旁人浑不解[5],

杖藜携酒看芝山[6]。

注释:

[1] 刘季孙:字刘景文,在1090年做过两浙兵马都监,得到王安石的赏识提拔,苏轼也曾写诗赠他,诗中写初冬的萧条景色,却显出了生机和诗意。诗人听了燕语,来看芝山,人与自然和谐相处,悠然自得,这就是古代士人的生活。

[2] 呢喃:形容燕子的低鸣。

[3] 底事:何事。

[4] 梦里闲:指悠闲的梦境。

[5] 浑不解:完全不理解。

[6] 芝山:山名,在今江西鄱阳,当时诗人在此地做官。

Written on a Screen

Liu Jisun

What do the twittering swallows say on the beam?

Why should they disturb a hermit’s leisurely dream?

No other man could understand them more than me;

I carry wine, cane in hand, to see mountains free.
