开元乐

心事数茎白发,

生涯一片青山。

空林有雪相待,

野路无人自还。

《苏东坡集》题跋卷二中有这首词,东坡题云:“李主好书神仙隐遁之词,岂非遭遇世故,欲脱世网而不得者耶?”这就是说,李后主喜欢佛教,但生长在帝王之家,父亲兄弟争权夺位,矛盾重重,长兄毒死叔父,一个月后,自己也不得善终,后主才能继承国君之位。但为了要奉宋王朝称臣,所以不免有忧患之心。这首词中的“心事”可能包括国事、家事,因此年纪轻轻,就已经长出几根白头发,也可以说是忧患迸发,化成白发了吧。第二句“生涯一片青山”,大约是说生活有起有落,宛如遥远的朦胧青山:起如即位、新婚;落如称臣、子殇。所以不如遁入空门,图个干净,这就是“空林有雪相待”。因为荒野世界不是久留之地,还不如“归去来兮”呢!

Happy Times

The sorrow in my mind bursts into a few hairs white;

My life has ups and downs as a stretch of hills blue.

In trackless forest snow waits for me with delight;

I come backfrom the wild path with no man in view.
