百步洪 The Hundred-Pace Rapids

Author: -- 苏轼 Su Shi
长洪斗落生跳波,
Waves leap up where the long, long rapids steeply fall;
轻舟南下如投梭。
A light boat southwards like plunging shuttle, lo!
水师绝叫凫雁起,
Water birds fly up at the boatman's desperate call.
乱石一线争磋磨。
Among the rocks it strives to thread its way and go
有如兔走鹰隼落,
As a hare darts away, an eagle dives below,
骏马下注千丈坡。
A gallant steed runs down a slope beyond control,
断弦离柱箭脱手,
A string snaps from a lute, an arrow from a bow,
飞电过隙珠翻荷。
Lightning cleaves clouds or off lotus leaves raindrops foil.
四山眩转风掠耳,
The mountains whirl around, the wind sweeps by the ear,
但见流沫生千涡。
I see the current boil in a thousand whirlpools.
险中得乐虽一快,
At the risk of my life I feel a joy without peer,
何异水伯夸秋河。
Just like the god who boasts of the river he rules.
我生乘化日夜逝,
Our life will pass like water running day and night;
坐觉一念逾新罗。
Our thoughts can in a twinkling go beyond ninth sphere.
纷纷争夺醉梦里,
Many people in drunken dreams contend and fight.
岂信荆棘埋铜驼。
Do they know palaces 'mid weeds will disappear?
觉来俯仰失千劫,
Awakened, they'd regret they've lost a thousand days;
回视此水殊委蛇。
Coming here, they will find the river freely rolls.
君看岸边苍石上,
If on the riverside rocks you just turn your gaze,
古来篙眼如蜂窠。
You will find only honeycombs of the punt poles.
但应此心无所住,
If your mind from earthly things is detached and freed,
造物虽驶如余何。
Although nature may change, at ease you will remain.
回船上马各归去,
Let us go back or in a boat or on a steed.
多言譊譊师所呵。
Our abbot will not like such an argument vain.
