小编导读:《示弟》是唐代诗人李贺的作品。此诗前半部分描写的是作者仕途蹭蹬,失意归来,而其弟却不嫌弃,热情款待,使得作者悲喜交加的复杂情感;后半部分作者一方面顾影自怜,抒发了沉沦不遇的感慨,另一方面又指摘时弊,表达了愤世嫉俗的情怀。全诗各联出句与对句相辅相成,音韵和谐,对仗工稳。

《示弟》 李贺

别弟三年后,还家一日余。
醁醽今夕酒,缃帙去时书。
病骨犹能在,人间底事无?
何须问牛马,抛掷任枭卢!

For My Brother
Li He

Three years after I left my brother,
I was back at home just the other day.
Luling is our wine tonight,
Only Xiangzhi for my books when I left.
Lucky to have come back in one piece,
For there is no lack in this world of mischief.
Why bother if it’s horse or ox,
Dice away, won or lost.
