东归感怀

[清]梁启超

极目中原幕色[1]深,

蹉跎负尽百年心。

那将涕泪三千斛[2],

换得头颅十万金。

鹃拜故林魂寂寞,

鹤归华表[3]气萧森。

恩仇稠叠盈怀抱,

抚髀[4]空为梁父吟[5]。

注释:

[1]幕色:即“暮色”。

[2]斛(hú):旧时量器的一种,方形。

[3]华表:一种传统建筑物,古代宫殿、陵墓前装饰用的石柱。

[4]髀(bì):大腿。

[5]梁父吟:相传为诸葛亮所作乐府诗,也称梁甫吟。

Coming back from the East

Liang Qichao

I stretch my sight in evening light to central spheres.

If I’d fulfill my ideal of a hundred years,

I’d not regret the copious tears and blood we’re shed,

I’m not afraid to lose even my worthy head.

The cuckoo would weep over the forbidden bower,

The crane would leave the overthrown imperial tower.

How to revenge the humiliation and the wrong?

Striking my breast,I would sing a heroic song.
