七言律詩
元稹

遣悲懷之一

謝公最小偏憐女, 自嫁黔婁百事乖。
顧我無衣搜藎篋, 泥他沽酒拔金釵。
野蔬充膳甘長藿, 落葉添薪仰古槐。
今日俸錢過十萬, 與君營奠復營齋。

Yuan Zhen

AN ELEGY I

O youngest, best-loved daughter of Xie,
Who unluckily married this penniless scholar,
You patched my clothes from your own wicker basket,
And I coaxed off your hairpins of gold, to buy wine with;
For dinner we had to pick wild herbs —
And to use dry locust-leaves for our kindling.
…Today they are paying me a hundred thousand —
And all that I can bring to you is a temple sacrifice.
