The Golden Dress

Anonymous

Love not your golden dress, I pray,

More than your youthful golden hours.

Gather sweet blossoms while you may,

And not the twig devoid of flowers!

《金缕衣》是唐朝时期的一首七言乐府。这是一首富有哲理性、涵义深永的小诗,它叫人们不要重视荣华富贵,而要爱惜少年时光,可以说它劝喻人们要及时摘取爱情的果实,也可以说是启示人们要及时建立功业,正因为它没有说得十分具体,反而更觉内涵丰富。

“The Golden Dress” is a seven-word poem from the Tang Dynasty. It is a philosophical and meaningful poem, telling people not to value glory and wealth, but to cherish their youth.
