蘇軾







Viewing Peonies at Good Fortune Temple
Su Shi 1036-1101

At my age I'm not abashed wearing a flower in my hair;
The flower should be the one abashed getting up there.
Coming home drunk and wobbly I heard people giggle,
Half the households across town upped their curtains for the tickle.

Sū Shì 1036-1101

Rén lǎo zān huā bú zì xiū,
Huā yīng xiū shàng lǎo rén tóu.
Zuì guī fú lù rén yīng xiào,
Shí lǐ zhū lián bàn shàng gōu.
