029 歐陽修 – 蝶戀花
029 OUYANG Xiu – Lyrics to the Melody of Butterflies Chasing Flowers
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
Says who that love could be forgone for long?
Every spring comes to find me as sorrowful and regretful as before.
Day after day I drink till I'm drunk before blossoms,
The mirror shows me losing flesh yet I care no more.
Willows by the levees and grassland by the river,
What say you of melancholy that comes year after year?
Standing on a small bridge with the breeze filling my sleeves I ponder,
Over woods on a flatland rises a new moon as I make my return.
