Hearing the Flute on a Spring Night in Luoyang

Li Bai

From whose house has come the song of jade flute unseen?

It fills the town of Luoyang, spread by wind of spring.

Tonight I hear the farewell song of Willow Green.

To whom the tune will not nostalgic feeling bring?

It was a Chinese custom to break a twig of willow and present it to the parting friend, so the willow song has become a farewell song. On hearing it, the poet thinks of home.

 

《春夜洛城闻笛》是唐代诗人李白创作的一首诗。此诗抒发了诗人客居洛阳夜深人静之时被笛声引起的思乡之情,其前两句描写笛声随春风而传遍洛阳城,后两句写因闻笛而思乡。全诗扣紧一个“闻”字,抒写诗人自己闻笛的感受,合理运用想象和夸张,条理通畅,感情真挚,余韵无穷。
