        都说清明时节雨纷纷,难得今年的清明却阳光明媚,在清明小长假的最后一天,让我们伴着和煦的春光,一起了解清明节并读一读那些关于清明节的诗句在被译成英文之后又会散发的另一种韵味和魅力吧。


     

           清明清明节是一个纪念祖先的节日。主要的纪念仪式是扫墓,扫墓是慎终追远、郭亲睦邻及行孝的具体表现;基于上述意义,清明节因此成为华人的重要节日。 清明节是在仲春和暮春之交,也就是冬至后的106天。扫墓活动通常是在清明节的前十天或后十天。有些地域的人士的扫墓活动长达一个月。节是一个纪念祖先的节日。主要的纪念仪式是扫墓,扫墓是慎终追远、郭亲睦邻及行孝的具体表现;基于上述意义,清明节因此成为华人的重要节日。 清明节是在仲春和暮春之交,也就是冬至后的106天。扫墓活动通常是在清明节的前十天或后十天。有些地域的人士的扫墓活动长达一个月。

Qing Ming is a time to remember the dead and the dearly departed. More   important, it is a period to honour and to pay respect to one's deceased ancestors and family members. Because it reinforces the ethic of filial piety, Qing Ming is a major Chinese festival.

寒食

(唐)韩翃


春城无处不飞花,

寒食东风御柳斜。

日暮汉宫传蜡烛,

轻烟散入五侯家。


After The Day Of No Fire

Translated by Hu Zhuanglin


Petals of spring fly all through the city,  

From the wind in the willows of the Imperial River. 

And at dusk,  from the palace,  candles are given out ,

To light first the mansions of the Five Great Lords.


清明

(唐)杜牧


清明时节雨纷纷,

路上行人欲断魂。

借问酒家何处有,

牧童遥指杏花村。



Qingming Festival


 Translated by Wan Changsheng  & Wang Jianzhong


The ceaseless drizzle drips all the dismal day,  

So broken-hearted fares the traveler on the way.  

When asked where could be found a tavern bower,   


A cowboy points to yonder village of the apricot flower.



江城子

(宋)苏轼



十年生死两茫茫,不思量,自难忘。千里孤坟,无处话凄凉。纵使相逢应不识,尘满面,鬓如霜。

夜来幽梦忽还乡,小轩窗,正梳妆。相顾无言,唯有泪千行。料得年年肠断处,明月夜,短松冈。


Jiang Chenzi 

Translated by Burton Watson


Ten years, dead and living dim and draw apart. 

 I don't try to remember, 

 But forgetting is hard. 

 Lonely grave a thousand miles off, 

Cold thoughts, where can I talk them out?  

Even if we met, you wouldn't know me, 

 Dust on my face, 

 Hair like frost. 

In a dream last night suddenly I was home. 

 By the window of the little room, 

 You were combing your hair and making up. 

 You turned and looked, not speaking, 

 Only lines of tears coursing down. 

 Year after year will it break my heart? 

The moonlit grave,  

The stubby pines.
