Yuan Zhen – 元稹

菊花

元稹

秋丛绕舍似陶家[1]

遍绕篱边日渐斜。

不是花中偏爱菊,

此花开尽更无花。

注释:

[1] 陶家:这里指陶渊明家。陶渊明,东晋诗人,写有“三径犹荒,松菊犹存”“采菊东篱下,悠然见南山”等名句,所以后代常常将陶渊明与菊花相连,表现一种隐士的高洁。

Yuan Zhen – 元稹

Chrysanthemums

Yuan Zhen

Around the cottage like Tao’s autumn flowers grow;

Along the hedge I stroll until the sun slants low.

Not that I favor partially the chrysanthemum,

But it is the last flower after which none will bloom.

Tao refers to the poet Tao Yuanming, well-known for his love of chrysanthemums.

Yuan Zhen – 元稹

 

《菊花》是唐代诗人元稹创作的一首诗。此诗先描述秋菊之多、花开之盛仿佛陶渊明家,以及诗人专注地看花时悠闲的情态;后从菊花凋谢最晚这个角度出发,写出了自己独特的爱菊花的理由,暗含了对菊花历尽寒冷最后凋零的坚强品格的赞美之情。全诗构思新颖自然,笔法巧妙,语言淡雅朴素,饶有韵味。

“Chrysanthemums” is a poem written by Yuan Zhen, a poet of the Tang Dynasty. The poem first describes the abundance of chrysanthemums in autumn, their blooming like Tao Yuanming’s house, and the poet’s leisurely mood when looking at the flowers intently; later, from the perspective that chrysanthemums fade the latest, he writes his own unique reason for loving chrysanthemums, implying his praise for the strong character of chrysanthemums that fade in the end after the cold. The whole poem has a novel and natural idea, clever writing style, elegant and simple language, and has a rhythm.
