The Golden Zither

Li Duan

How clear the golden zither rings

When her fair fingers touch its strings!

To draw attention from her lord,

Now and then she strikes a discord.

This quatrain speaks of music and the musician.

《听筝》是唐代诗人李端创作的一首五言绝句。该诗描写一位弹筝女子为了所爱慕的人顾盼自己,故意将弦拨错,塑造了一个可爱的弹筝女形象,语句传神,意蕴丰富。

“The Golden Zither” is a five-line poem written by Li Duan, a poet of the Tang Dynasty. The poem depicts a woman playing the zither who deliberately plucks the wrong string for the sake of her admirer, creating a lovely image of a woman playing the zither.
