032 歐陽修 – 臨江仙
032 OUYANG Xiu – Lyrics to the Linjiang Narcissi
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
Beyond the foliage of willows claps soft thunder, over the pool falls rain,
Drips and drops of rain on lotus leaves sound create.
A rainbow hangs to the west of this place.
By the balustrade I lean,
Waiting for the moon to shine and height gain.
Here come swallows scouting about columns and beams that are decorated,
So I lower the curtains by letting loose hooks made of jade.
The pattern on the flat bamboo mat glistens like cool water waves.
By the pair of glass pillows,
Lie a hairpin on its side mislaid.
