Awake from dreams, I find the locked tower high;
Sober from wine, I see the curtain hanging low.
As last year spring grief seems to grow.
Amid the falling blooms alone stand I;
I the fine rain a pair of swallows fly.
I still remember when I first saw pretty Ping,
I silken dress embroidered with two hearts in a ring,
Revealing lovesickness by touching pipa’s string.
The moon shines bright just as last year:
It did see her like a cloud disappear.
This lyric describes the poet’s love for a songstress compared to a rainbow cloud.
“Riverside Daffodils” is a lyric by Yan Qidao of the Song Dynasty. The lyric is about the author’s return to the same place after parting from his lover, arousing his infinite nostalgia for his lover and expressing his love for the songstress Little Apple. The first piece depicts the lonely scene of empty buildings and the sadness of the yearly spring breakup. The two lines of “Falling Flowers” are a perfect adaptation of the previous lines. In the next stanza, the author recalls the warm and touching scene when he first met Little Apple, and in the last two lines, he uses Li Bai’s poem to create a new context, expressing the author’s memories of his past love affairs and his despair that the bright moon is still the same, but nothing has changed. The lyrics are well-structured and the scene is well-integrated, which is a masterpiece.
