Chen Yuyi – 陈与义

临江仙
夜登小阁忆洛中旧游

陈与义

忆昔午桥桥上饮,
坐中多是豪英。
长沟流月去无声。
杏花疏影里,
吹笛到天明。

二十余年如一梦,
此身虽在堪惊。
闲登小阁看新晴。
古今多少事,
渔唱起三更。

Riverside Daffodils
· Mount the Tower at Night to Recall the Former Visit in Luo Zhong

Chen Yuyi

I still remember drinking on the Bridge of Noon
With bright wits of the day.
The silent moon
On endless river rolled away.
In lacy shadows cast by apricot flowers
We played our flutes till morning hours.

O’er twenty years have passed like dreams;
It is a wonder that I’m still alive.
Carefree, I mount the tower bathed in moonbeams.
So many things passed long
Ago survive
Only in fishermen’s midnight song.

注释:
The poet compares moonlit nights in the south and in the north.

Chen Yuyi – 陈与义

《临江仙·夜登小阁忆洛中旧游》是宋代词人陈与义创作的一首词。这首词是作者晚年追忆洛中朋友和旧游而作的。上片写对已经沦落敌国之手的家乡以及早年自在快乐生活的回顾。下片宕开笔墨回到现实,概括词人从踏上仕途所经历的颠沛流离和国破家亡的痛苦生活,结句将古今悲慨、国恨家愁,都融入“渔唱”之中,将沉挚的悲感化为旷达的襟怀。此词直抒胸臆,表情达意真切感人,通过上下两片的今昔对比,萌生对家国和人生的惊叹与感慨,韵味深远绵长。
