一望二三里 A Leisure Walk
邵雍 (北宋) Shao Yong (Song)
yí wàng èr sān lǐ
一 望 二 三 里,
yān cūn sì wǔ jiā
烟 村 四 五 家。
tínɡ tái liù qī zuò
亭 台 六 七 座,
bā jiǔ shí zhī huā
八 九 十 枝 花。


Once a time, we walk leisurely for two or three miles
On the way, we see four or five villages
Six or seven temples and
Eight , nine or ten branches of flowers


【译文】
一眼望去就是两三里路,看见沿途炊烟袅袅,住着几户人家。仿佛让人看到山里数座亭台耸立,路边的野花昂首怒放。

咏鹅 Hymn to the Goose
骆宾王 Luo Binwang (Tang)
é é é
鹅,鹅,鹅,
qū xiàng xiàng tiān gē
曲 项 向 天 歌。
bái máo fú lǜ shuǐ
白 毛 浮 绿 水,
hóng zhǎng bō qīng bō
红 掌 拨 清 波。


Honk, honk, and honk,
With upward neck thou to the sky loudly sing.
Thy white feathers float on the water green,
Thy red webs push the crystal waves with a swing.


【译文】
鹅呀鹅,弯着脖子向天唱着歌。洁白的毛漂浮在碧绿的水面上,红红的脚掌拨动着清清的水波。

静夜思 In a Quiet Night
李白 Li Bai (Tang)
chuáng qián míng yuè guāng
床 前 明 月 光,
yí shì dì shàng shuāng
疑 是 地 上 霜。
jǔ tóu wàng míng yuè
举 头 望 明 月,
dī tóu sī gù xiāng
低 头 思 故 乡。


Before my bed shine bright the silver beams,
It seems the autumn frost on the ground so gleams.
I gaze upwards toward the moon in the skies,
And downwards look when a nostalgia does arise.


【译文】
那透过窗户映照在床前的月光,起初以为是一层层的白霜。仰首看那空中的一轮明月,不由得低下头来沉思,愈加想念自己的故乡。

游子吟 A Traveller’s Song
孟郊 Meng Jiao (Tang)
cí mǔ shǒu zhōng xiàn
慈 母 手 中 线,
yóu zǐ shēn shàng yī
游 子 身 上 衣。
lín xíng mì mì féng
临 行 密 密 缝,
yì kǒng chí chí guī
意 恐 迟 迟 归。
shuí yán cùn cǎo xīn
谁 言 寸 草 心,
bào dé sān chūn huī
报 得 三 春 晖。


The thread in the hands of a fond-hearted mother
Makes clothes for the body of her wayward boy;
Carefully she sews and thoroughly she mends,
Dreading the delays that will keep him late from home.
But how much love has the inch-long grass
For three spring months of the light of the sun?


【译文】
儿子临走前,仁慈的母亲手里拿着针线,为出远门的儿子缝衣服。母亲一针一线缝得又密又牢,就怕孩子在外迟迟不能归来。我们做儿女的就像路边的小草,怎能报答春天所给与的光辉呢?

春晓 Spring Morning

孟浩然 Meng Haoran (Tang)
chūn mián bù jué xiǎo
春 眠 不 觉 晓,
chù chù wén tí niǎo
处 处 闻 啼 鸟。
yè lái fēng yǔ shēng
夜 来 风 雨 声,
huā luò zhī duō shǎo
花 落 知 多 少。


Into my slumber in spring steal beams of morning light,
And now to my ears come the voices of birds all around.
Yet I heard the sounds of winds and rains in the night,
I wonder how many flowers are fallen down to the ground.


【译文】
春夜酣睡不知不觉已到天亮,到处能听到鸟儿在鸣唱,依稀记得昨夜阵阵风声雨声,不知道又有多少花朵凋落了。

The five Tang poems really remind me the old time when I learn Chinese, which are really familiar to Chinese. To help you learn Chinese, please check http://www.hellomandarin.com
