小编导读:《画眉鸟》是北宋文学家欧阳修创作的一首七言绝句。此诗前两句写景,景中寓理;后两句言理,情理兼融。诗人在再现良辰美景时,着意于将自己感悟到的理念,不露痕迹地含蕴其间,从而表现出诗人对禁锢人才的憎恶与否定、对自由生活的热爱与向往。这首诗情景结合,寓意深远。

《画眉鸟》 欧阳修

百啭千声随意移,山花红紫树高低。
始知锁向金笼听,不及林间自在啼。

Oriole
Ouyang Xiu

Hundred chirps and thousand twitters and movement at will,
Mountain flowers red and purple, trees high and low.
Just learned what it sounds like to be locked in a golden cage,
A far cry from the unrestrained warbling in the woods.
