羽林郎 Captain of the Guard

Author: -- 辛延年 Xin Yannian
昔有霍家奴,
In bygone days General Huo had high fame;
姓冯名子都。
He had a slave called Feng Zidu by name.
依倚将军势,
Relying on the general's full power,
调笑酒家胡。
Feng ogled a Hunnish maiden, wine-house flower.
胡姬年十五,
The Hunnish maiden was only fifteen;
春日独当垆。
Alone she served out wine when spring was green
长裾连理带,
Her long gown girt with double girdle by the side,
广袖合欢襦。
Her vest adorned with love-birds and sleeves wide
头上蓝田玉,
Jade from Blue Field in her hair did appear;
耳后大秦珠。
A pair of Roman pearls behind her ear.
两鬟何窈窕,
Her two tresses were so charming and fair
一世良所无。
That in the world they stood without compare.
一鬟五百万,
One tress was worth five million coins even then;
两鬟千万余。
The two of them were worth much more than ten
不意金吾子,
"Who would have thought a captain of the guard
娉婷过我庐。
Would drop in and pay me his high regard!
银鞍何煜耀,
His silver saddle has a dazzling sheen;
翠盖空踟蹰。
His carriage waits with a canopy green.
就我求清酒,
He comes forward to ask me for clear wine;
丝绳提玉壶。
I raise jade wine-pot by silken cord fine.
就我求珍肴,
He asks me then for delicious dish;
金盘脍鲤鱼。
I offer him on golden plate sliced fish.
贻我青铜镜,
He gives me a bronze mirror of renown
结我红罗裾。
And tries to tie it to my red silk gown.
不惜红罗裂,
But I would rather have my red silk torn
何论轻贱躯。
Than let him stain my body humbly born.
男儿爱后妇,
A man would always love a second wife;
女子重前夫。
A woman should love her husband through life.
人生有新旧,
The new will come forth if the old should go;
贵贱不相逾。
The high cannot be mixed up with the low.
多谢金吾子,
I thank the captain of the Royal Guard:
私爱徒区区。
"Please do not press a worthless one too hard!"
