Listen to this article

小编导读:《桂枝香·金陵怀古》是宋代文学家王安石的词作。此词通过对金陵(今江苏南京)景物的赞美和历史兴亡的感喟,寄托了作者对当时朝政的担忧和对国家政治大事的关心。


《桂枝香·金陵怀古》 王安石

登临送目,正故国晚秋,天气初肃。千里澄江似练,翠峰如簇。征帆去棹残阳里,背西风、酒旗斜矗。采舟云淡,星河鹭起,画图难足。

念往昔、繁华竞逐,叹门外楼头,悲恨相续。千古凭高对此,漫嗟荣辱。六朝旧事随流水,但寒烟芳草凝绿。至今商女,时时犹唱,后庭遗曲。

Fragrance of Laurel Branch
Wang Anshi

I climb the height
And stretch my sight:
Late autumn just begins its gloomy time.
The ancient capital looks sublime.
The limpid river, beltlike, flows a thousand miles;
Emerald peaks on peaks tower in piles.
In the declining sun sails come and go;
Against west wind wineshop steamers flutter high and low.
The painted boat
In cloud afloat,
Like stars in Silver River egrets fly.
What a picture before the eye!

The days gone by
Saw people in opulence vie.
Alas! Shame on shame came under the walls,
In palace halls.
Leaning on rails, in vain I utter sighs
Over ancient kingdoms’ fall and rise.
The running water saw the Six Dynasties pass,
But I see only chilly mist and withered grass.
Even now and again
The songstresses still sing
The song composed in vain
By a captive king.
