小编导读:《达摩支曲》是唐代诗人温庭筠创作的一首七言古诗。诗人在这首诗中,颂扬了蔡文姬、苏武二人的爱国热情,斤责了“无愁天子”高纬的误国行径,对有雄心报国的北齐老臣终抱亡国之恨表示叹惋。

《达摩支曲》 温庭筠

捣麝成尘香不灭,拗莲作寸丝难绝。
红泪文姬洛水春,白头苏武天山雪。
君不见无愁高纬花漫漫,漳浦宴馀清露寒。
一旦臣僚共囚虏,欲吹羌管先汍澜。
旧臣头鬓霜华早,可惜雄心醉中老。
万古春归梦不归,邺城风雨连天草。

Damozhi Song
Wen Tingyun

Pestling the musk into powder does not kill the fragrance,
Snapping lotus root by the inch hardly severs the attaching fibres.
The red tears of Wenji and the Luoshui River in spring,
The white hair of Su Wu and the fluttering Tianshan Mountain snow.
Didn’t you see Gao Wei in his lascivious foppery, worry-free?
The Zhang River banquet over, in came the chilling crystalline dews.
Once the ministers and generals taken prisoners or slaves,
The Qiang flute, ever since, was preceded by tearful spates.
The sideburns of officials frosted before their time,
Pity, their high ambitions aging in inebriating wine.
From time immemorial, spring always returns but not dreams.
As the Yecheng City is o’ergrown in storms with soaring weeds.
