陆游 Lu You

陆游 Lu You

Lu You (or Lu Yu, 1125–1209)[1] was a prominent poet of China's Southern Song Dynasty.

Lu You wrote about eleven thousand poems,[7] in both the shi (詩) and ci (詞) forms, plus a number of prose works. In his poetry he continues to articulate the beliefs which cost him his official career, calling for reconquest of the north. Watson identifies these works as part of the legacy of Du Fu (杜甫). Watson compares a second body of work, poems on country life and growing old, to those of Bai Juyi (白居易) and Tao Qian (陶潛).

His style can be divided into three periods.

First Period
The first Period of Lu You’s works is from his teenage years to age 46. This period, although the longest, contains the fewest of his works, about two hundred poems, because he himself destroyed his early works.

Second Period
Second Period runs from age 46 to 54, including more than 2400 shi and ci. During this period, Lu You joined the military and was affected by that experience.

Third Period
The third Period runs from the time Lu You retired to his home town until his death. He did not have time to edit his work, and 6500 poems survive from this period. His work in this period includes peaceful pastoral images as well as desolation and bleakness.

Though his style changed throughout his life, his work is always full of patriotism. This is the most important feature of his poetry, and the major reason they have been valued for almost a thousand years.

鹧鸪天·家住苍烟落照间 Tune: Partridge Sky

Author: -- 陆游 Lu You
家住苍烟落照间。
Living between grey mist and setting sun,
丝毫尘事不相关。
I'm freed from all worldly cares one by one.
斟残玉瀣行穿竹,
Drunk, I'll pass through groves of bamboo;
卷罢黄庭卧看山。
Books read, I would lie still to contemplate the hill.
贪啸傲,
Why proud and bold?
任衰残。
Let me grow old
不妨随处一开颜。
And wear, wherever I go, a smiling face!
元知造物心肠别,
Don't you know the Creator has the grace
老却英雄似等闲。
To level heroes down to commonplace?

朝中措·梅 Tune: Measures at Court - The Plum Blossom

Author: -- 陆游 Lu You
幽姿不入少年场,
Your lonely grace won't visit Vanity Fair;
无语只凄凉。
Silent and sad, you do not care.
一个飘零身世,
Like a wanderer you play your part
十分冷淡心肠。
With an indifferent heart.
江头月底,
In moonlight by the stream,
新诗旧梦,
With new verse and old dream,
孤恨清香。
I feel the grief your fragrance brings.
任是春风不管,
Uncared for by the vernal breeze on the wing,
也曾先识东皇。
You are the first to welcome spring.

卜算子·咏梅 Tune: Song of Divination - Ode to the Plum Blossom

Author: -- 陆游 Lu You
驿外断桥边,
Beside the broken bridge and outside the post hall
寂寞开无主。
A flower is blooming forlorn.
已是黄昏独自愁,
Saddened by her solitude at nightfall,
更著风和雨。
By wind and rain she's further torn.
无意苦争春,
Let other flowers their envy pour.
一任群芳妒。
To spring she lays no claim.
零落成泥碾作尘,
Fallen in mud and ground to dust, she seems no more,
只有香如故。
But her fragrance is still the same.

钗头凤 Tune: Phoenix Hairpin

Author: -- 陆游 Lu You
红酥手,
Pink hands so fine,
黄縢酒,
Gold-branded wine,
满城春色宫墙柳。
Spring paints the willows green palace walls can't confine.
东风恶,
East wind unfair,
欢情薄。
Happy times rare.
一怀愁绪,
In my heart sad thoughts throng;
几年离索。
We've severed for years long.
错!错!错!
Wrong, wrong, wrong!
春如旧,
Spring is as green,
人空瘦,
In vain she's lean,
泪痕红浥鲛绡透。
Her kerchief soaked with tears and red with stains unclean.
桃花落,
Peach blossoms fall
闲池阁。
Near deserted hall.
山盟虽在,
Our oath is still there. Lo!
锦书难托。
No word to her can go.
莫!莫!莫!
No, no, no!
