英譯 – 李煜 – 相見歡
LI Yu – A Joyful Rendezvous

中文原文﹕

無言獨上西樓,
月如鉤。
寂寞梧桐深院鎖清秋。

剪不斷,理還亂,
是離愁。
別是一般滋味在心頭。

英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕

In seclusion I ascend the west tower in silence,
a hook of a new moon hangs above.
On guarded grounds lonesome phoenix trees apprehend the works of a brisk fall.

Sever not, reasons fail,
it is parting sorrow but sweet it is not.
It is a taste of something else on the hook, on my mind it frees me not.
