Li Shangyin courtesy name Yishan (Chinese: 義山), was a Chinese poet and politician of the late Tang dynasty

 

无题

(二首其二)

重帷深下莫愁堂,

卧后清宵细细长。

神女[1]生涯原是梦,

小姑[2]居处本无郎。

风波不信菱枝弱,

月露谁教桂叶香。

直道相思了无益,

未妨惆怅是清狂。

这首诗描写男女之情,却又道出了相思无益之言,全诗意境深远,措辞委婉,具有较高的艺术价值。

注释:

[1]神女:宋玉《神女赋》中的巫山神女。

[2]小姑:古乐府《青溪小姑曲》:“小姑所居,独处无郎。”

(II)

The grief laden curtains hang deep in her Griefless Hall,

Awake from sleeps,she finds the sleepless night grow long.

A happy life in love is a dream beyond call;

A lonely virgin deprived of amorous song.

Against the wind and waves can’t stand her cresses frail.

Will the moon shed dew to make her laurel leaves sweet?

Although she knows her lovesickness of no avail,

How can a passionate poor heart no longer beat?

Note:This poem describes the sleepless night of a solitary woman in her Griefless Hall.
