《鹧鸪天·西都作》 朱敦儒

我是清都山水郎,
天教分付与疏狂。
曾批给雨支云券,
累上留云借月章。

诗万卷,
酒千觞,
几曾着眼看侯王?
玉楼金阙慵归去,
且插梅花醉洛阳。

Partridge Sky
Zhu Dunru

Your painted boat went eastward on the river clear.
How could I bear the parting sorrow sad and drear?
Since in west wind with tears in eyes we bade adieu,
Nine out of ten nights I dream of the station and you.

Clouds fly over water wide,
Wild geese over riverside,
Only amid sweet grass
Can I see leaving soul, alas!
Last time we came together to pick lotus leaves;
Now the lonely moon in the dreary breeze still grieves.
