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