A Spring Day

Zhu Xi (Song)

When along the River Si I seek blooms of the brilliant day,

Before my eyes stretches away a boundless scene of beauty.

A glance at the visage of vernal breeze, and I know,

A thousand flowers of purple and red set spring aglow.

Comment:

On a spring outing along the river, the poet discovers to his delight that everything in sight has taken on an entirely new look. How come? The vernal wind is blowing across the land. It has opened a thousand of spring flowers which, in turn, has presented a riot of color to man, thereby the poet eulogizes the luminous beauty of spring with the vernal wind as the mother of all charms in spring. Hence, “I glance at the visage of vernal breeze, and I know a thousand flowers of purple and red set spring aglow” has all along been popular as a line of lasting beauty.

简介:

诗人外出河边寻春踏青,一眼就感觉到处是焕然一新。为什么?因为天地间到处都吹着和煦的东风,东风催开了百花,百花为人们捧出了万紫千红的春天。

春 日

朱熹(宋)

Shèng rì xún fāng sì shuǐ bīn,wú biān guāng jǐng yì shí xīn。

胜 日 寻 芳 泗 水 滨 , 无 边 光 景 一 时 新。

Děng xián shí dé dōng fēng miàn,wàn zǐ qiān hóng zǒng shì chūn。

等 闲 识 得 东 风 面 , 万 紫 千 红 总 是 春。
