Yan Jidao – 晏几道

长相思[1]
晏几道

长相思,
长相思。
若问相思甚了期[2],
除非相见时。

长相思,
长相思。
欲把相思说似谁[3],
浅情人不知。

注释:
[1]长相思:唐教坊曲名,后用作词牌。因古乐府中有“上言长相思,下言久别离”句,取以为名。一说此曲原名“湘妃怨”,是民间祭祀娥皇、女英时所用的乐曲。据上古传说:虞舜巡游南方,亡,二妃寻至潇湘。二妃啼,以涕挥竹,竹尽斑。白居易依《湘妃怨》的节拍填词,此曲因而成为词调,名《长相思》,又名《相思令》《双红豆》《忆多娇》《青山相送迎》《吴山青》,双调三十六字,上下阕各四句四平韵。
[2]甚了期:何时才能了却。
[3]说似谁:犹“说与谁”。

Everlasting Longing
Yan Jidao

I yearn for long,
I yearn for long.
When may I end my yearning song?
Until you come along.

I yearn for long,
I yearn for long.
To whom may I sing my love song?
To none in love not strong.

注释:
This lyric is simple and clear, unlike the poet’s other lyrics.
