静夜思

窗前明月 ,

举头望明 ,

A bed, I see a silver light,

I wonder if it’s frost aground.

Looking up. I find the moon bright;

Bowing , in homesickness I’m drowned.

静夜思

窗前明月光,

疑是地上霜。

举头望明月,

低头思故乡。


A Spring Morning

This morn of spring in bed I’m lying,

Not woke up till I hear birds crying.

After one night of wind and showers,

How many are the fallen flowers.

春晓

春眠不觉晓,处处闻啼鸟。

夜来风雨声,花落知多少。

孟浩然


On the Stork Tower

The mountain is eating away the setting sun;

Going seawards the Yellow River is on the

run.

If you desire to have a good and boundless

sight,

Come to the upper storey, by climbing one

more flight.

登鹳雀楼

白日依山尽,黄河入海流。

欲穷千里目,更上一层楼。

王之涣

Sonnet 18 questions :

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date:Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimmed;And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;But thy eternal summer shall not fade,Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st;So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

我愿把你比做宜人的夏日,

但比起夏日你更温暖更可爱。

夏日的狂风时而会摧败那娇嫩的蓓蕾,

而那美丽的季节总太过吝啬她珍贵的时光。

夏日的焦阳时而炙热耀眼,

而他金色的面容又时常暗淡无光。

就像一切美好的事物都会褪去他美丽的资质,

随着生命的法则或自然的变迁而慢慢流逝;

但你我的盛夏却永不枯竭,

时间难以带走你灵魂里的美丽,

死神无法夺去你生命中的光明,

因为在我的诗中你就是永恒的时间和神明。

只要人类尚未消亡双目不瞑 呼吸尚存

我的诗就会千古流传并带给你无尽的永生。
