014 晏殊 – 清平樂
014 YAN Shu – Lyrics to the Joy of Peace and Tranquillity
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
On a crimson note of small calligraphic writing,
Expressive are aspirations and emotions of mine,
Fish through waters swim while long distance travelling geese among clouds fly,
Yet hard to deliver are my melancholy sentiments at this time.
As the sun inclines, in the west chamber I recline in solitude,
Looking at the silhouette of distant hills between gathered curtains held by hooks.
I know not the whereabouts of the countenance of my desire,
Yet continuing to flow eastwards are green ripples as usual.
