011 張先 – 生查子
011 ZHANG Xian – Lyrics to the Raw Haws Melody
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
Bashfully she adjusts her jadeite hair-knot jewellery,
Yet she eyes her patron time and again when she pleases.
The slanted zither neck akin to dashing geese and its thirteen strings
Note after note portray orioles' warble and tweets.
Charming clouds vanish easily,
Leaving no trace severing dreams.
A closely enclosed courtyard locks in dusk,
As showers shower on plantain leaves.
