七言律詩
薛逢

宮詞

十二樓中盡曉妝, 望仙樓上望君王。
鎖銜金獸連環冷, 水滴銅龍晝漏長。
雲髻罷梳還對鏡, 羅衣欲換更添香。
遙窺正殿簾開處, 袍褲宮人掃御床。

A PALACE POEM

In twelve chambers the ladies, decked for the day,
Peer afar for their lord from their Fairy-View Lodge;
The golden toad guards the lock on the door-chain,
And the bronze-dragon water-clock drips through the morning
Till one of them, tilting a mirror, combs her cloud of hair
And chooses new scent and a change of silk raiment;
For she sees, between screen-panels, deep in the palace,
Eunuchs in court-dress preparing a bed.
