鹊桥仙
夜闻杜鹃

陆游

茅檐人静,
蓬窗灯暗,
春晚连江风雨。
林莺巢燕总无声,
但月夜、
常啼杜宇。

催成清泪,
惊残孤梦,
又拣深枝飞去。
故山犹自不堪听,
况半世、
飘然羁旅!

Immortal at the Magpie Bridge
· Hearing the Cuckoo’s Cry at Night

Lu You

Under the thatched eaves all’s still at night;
By the straw window flickers candlelight,
While wind and rain o’erspread the river in late spring.
Nor orioles nor swallows in their nests will sing,
But I hear the cuckoo’s cry
Oft rend the moonlit sky.

Urging clear tears to stream
And startling me from lonely dream,
Away to a deep-hidden branch they fly.
Even in native hills I could not stand their song,
Let alone after half my life drifting along.

注释:
The poet is sad to hear the cuckoo’s home-going song for he cannot go home without recovering the lost land.
