南浦别

南浦凄凄别,

西风袅袅秋。

一看肠一断,

好去莫回头。

白居易在《琵琶行》序中说:“元和十年(815),予左迁九江郡司马。明年秋,送客湓浦口。”这首《南浦别》有可能是和《琵琶行》同时的作品。第一句形容内心的凄凉愁苦。第二句描写秋景的萧瑟暗淡,“袅袅”二字使风声如泣如诉,更衬托出离别的“凄凄”之情。离人已经登舟而去,但还频频回首,每一回首,都引起送行人“肠一断”,所以反劝离人不要回首。这就写出了依依惜别的深情。

Farewell by Southern Riverside

By Southern Riverside we bid dreary goodbye;

Autumn seems desolate to hear the west wind sigh.

My heart would break each time you look back to the shore.

Go on before and don’t turn your head any more!

 

《南浦别》是唐代诗人白居易创作的一首五言绝句。在诗中,诗人刻画了送别过程中的传情细节,用凄凉的景色表达出依依惜别的深情。因古诗文中多写南浦之别,“南浦”因而成为送别之处的代名词。

“Farewell by Southern Riverside” is a five-line poem written by Bai Juyi, a poet of the Tang Dynasty. In the poem, the poet depicts the sentimental details of the farewell process and expresses the deep feelings of parting with a bleak landscape. As the poem is often written about the farewell at Nanpu, “Nanpu” has become a synonym for the place of farewell.
