望洞庭湖赠张丞相·孟浩然/每日一句

望洞庭湖赠张丞相
 
孟浩然
 
八月湖水平,涵虚混太清。
气蒸云梦泽,波撼岳阳城。
欲济无舟楫,端居耻圣明。
坐观垂钓者,空有羡鱼情。
 
 
 
A MESSAGE FROM LAKE DONGTIN TO PREMIER ZHANG
 
Meng Haoran
 
Here in the Eighth-month the waters of the lake
Are of a single air with heaven,
And a mist from the Yun and Meng valleys
Has beleaguered the city of Youzhou.
I should like to cross, but I can find no boat.
...How ashamed I am to be idler than you statesmen,
As I sit here and watch a fisherman casting
And emptily envy him his catch.
 
 
(许渊冲译)
