大漠沙如雪,

燕山[1]月似钩。

何当[2]金络脑[3]

快走踏清秋。

[2] 何当:何时承受。

[3] 金络脑:嵌金的马络头。《陌上桑》:“黄金络马头。”这里指贵重的辔头、鞍具等。

Horse Poems (Ⅴ)

Li He

The desert sand looks white as snow;

The crescent moon hangs like a bow.

When would the steed in golden gear

Gallop all night through autumn clear?

The poet who cannot serve his country compares himself to a battle horse which cannot gallop at full speed.
