306 李清照 – 醉花陰
306 LI Qingzhao – Lyrics to the Melody of Becoming Drunk in the Shade of Blossoms
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
A light mist and dense clouds shroud a long day in melancholy,
The fragrance of an exquisite essence scatters from the gilded beast-shaped burner.
Come again has the season of the Double Ninth,
Through the silk drapes and the embroidered pillow
Chilliness begins to penetrate in the middle of the night.
I sip at my wine by the east fence past the twilight,
I chrysanthemums and their subtle scent keep in my sleeves.
How could anyone not agree that this is soul lifting?
Yet when a westerly raises the screen,
I realise I have withered thinner than those yellow petals and leaves.
