南柯子
吴潜
池水凝新碧,
阑花驻老红。
有人独立画桥东,
手把一枝杨柳系春风。
鹊绊游丝坠,
蜂拈落蕊空。
秋千庭院小帘栊,
多少闲情闲绪雨声中。

Song of a Dream
Wu Qian
By pools of congealed green
Red flowers form a screen.
East of the painted bridge alone stands she,
Trying to bind spring breeze with sprigs of willow tree.
Magpies fly through gossamers light,
The bees alight on falling flowers in vain.
A swing hangs in the yard before the window bright.
How much sorrow and leisure she feels in the rain!

注释:
