浣溪沙
苏轼

游蕲水[1]清泉寺[2],寺临兰溪,溪水西流。
山下兰芽[3]短浸溪,
松间沙路净无泥,
萧萧[4]暮雨子规啼。

谁道人生无再少[5]?
门前流水尚能西[6],
休将白发唱黄鸡。

注释:
[1]蕲水:在黄州东南,发源于湖北蕲春县。
[2]清泉寺:《东坡志林》:“寺在蕲水郭门外二里许,有王逸少(王羲之)洗笔泉。”
[3]兰芽:兰草初生的嫩芽。
[4]萧萧:同“潇潇”。细雨连绵的样子。
[5]再少:重返青春。
[6]门前流水尚能西:我国地势特点是西北高东南低,江河多从西向东流,而兰溪却向西流。作者由此联想到人生也能“再少”。

Silk-washing Stream
Su Shi

In the stream below the hill there drowns the orchid bud;
On sandy path between pine trees you see no mud.
Shower by shower falls the rain while cuckoos sing.

Who says an old man can’t return unto his spring?
Before Clear Fountain’s Temple water still flows west.
Why can’t the cock still crow though with a snow-white crest?

注释:
The poet is very optimistic to say that an old man can be restored to his youth.
