Zhu Dunru Poem: Riverside Daffodils – 朱敦儒《临江仙·堪笑一场颠倒梦》

Zhu Dunru – 朱敦儒

临江仙
朱敦儒
堪笑一场颠倒梦,
元来恰似浮云。
尘劳何事最相亲。
今朝忙到夜,
过腊又逢春。

流水滔滔无住处,
飞光匆匆西沉。
世间谁是百年人。
个中须著眼[1],
认取自家身。

注释:
[1]著眼:宋周必大《二老堂诗话》载:“朱希真致仕居嘉禾,诗词独步一世。秦丞相欲令教秦伯阳作诗,遂除鸿胪少卿。或作诗云:‘少室山人久桂冠,不知何事到长安。如今纵插梅花醉,未必王侯著眼看。’”

Riverside Daffodils
Zhu Dunru

Laughable life is a dream of fall and rise;
It’s just like a cloud floating in the skies.
What business do you like best,
Toiling from morning till night,
From winter cold to spring bright?

Water flows on and on without rest.
The sun flies, suddenly it sinks in the west.
Who on earth can live to a hundred years old?
You should have discerning eyes
To know if you are clay or gold.

注释:
The poet thinks life is full of ups and downs.
