王和卿 Wang Heqing

Wang Heqing 王和卿 (c. 1260), a writer of Chinese Sanqu poetry, was a native of Daming in Hebei province. Other than his birthplace, which is noted in Zheng Sicheng’s Record of Ghosts, nothing of certainty can be said of his life. The Ming period Chuo Genglu 輟耕錄, describes Wang as a friend of Guan Hanqing 關漢卿 (c. 1300) in Tadu, modern Beijing. It is also noted that Wang's lyric on the giant butterfly in the Beijing area was the beginning of his popularity as a writer in the 1260s. Of his sanqu lyrics, twenty-one short lyrics survive with one suite and fragments.

醉中天-咏大蝴蝶 Tune: A Drinker's Sky - Song of a Huge Butterfly

Author: -- 王和卿 Wang Heqing
弹破庄周梦,
Breaking a philosopher's dream,
两翅驾东风,
He flaps his wings and rides on the east wind in flight.
三百座名园、
He gathers all the honey from the flowers
一采一个空。
In three hundred well-known gardens and bowers.
谁道风流种,
Don't say the lover of beauty and breeze
唬杀寻芳的蜜蜂。
Has scared away all honey-seeking bees!
轻轻飞动,
Flapping his fan-like wings so light,
把卖花人搧过桥东。
He blows the flower-seller off across the stream.

一半儿 Tune: Half and Half - Parting Grief

书来和泪怕开缄,
When I receive his letter, my tears rain;
又不归来空再三,
I am afraid to open it, for again and again
这样病儿谁惯耽?
He said he'd come back, but in vain.
越恁瘦岩岩,
How could I not grow thin and my grief be appeased?
一半儿增添一半儿减。
When one half has decreased, the other has increased.

将来书信手拈着,
I take his letter near at hand,
灯下姿姿观觑了,
And read it by lamplight carefully.
两三行字真带草。
He wrote carelessly these two lines or three,
提起来越心焦,
Which I am anxious to understand.
一半儿丝撏一半儿烧!
Half of his letter is tom apart, Another half bums my heart.

别来宽褪缕金衣,
My golden robe turns loose since my love from me parted;
粉悴烟憔减玉肌,
My powdered face and jadelike skin look broken-hearted.
泪点儿只除衫袖知。
Tears dripping drop by drop only known to my sleeves,
盼佳期,
Wait for him with a sigh,
一半儿才干一半儿湿。
My sleeves are half wet and half dry.
