祭赵湖州文

原作:李清照

英译:闵晓红


白日正中,叹庞翁之机捷。坚城自堕,怜杞妇之悲深。


On the death of my husband Zhao Mingcheng, the governor of Huzhou


written by: : Li Qingzhao ( 12th century)

translated by: Julia Min


Your life journey is just half way, like the dazzling sun at midday. Then you’re gone, leaving me alone to a world sinking astray. You’re the elite of the Song, but nothing gold can stay.

I remember the daughter of Monk Pang, who ended her life before he passed away, --

a relieve from such grief faithful to a heart of pain.



Appreciation:

Yi'an's husband Zhao Mingcheng (1081 - 1129, epigrapher, poet, and politician) died of disease after he was appointed to be Huzhou's governor of the New Southern Song dynasty. His sudden death left his wife to a world under the siege of the Jin invaders.
