What would you like to do?
Where to Live (Du Fu)
West of the Flower Washing Stream,
not far downstream from the bridge,
the master has chosen a quiet spot
here in the woods by the river.
Living apart from the city crowds,
the world loosens its grip;
murmuring of this clear water dissolves
the sadness that burdens a stranger.
Countless dragonflies play in the air,
dancing up and down;
a pair of wild ducks out in the stream
swim and dive together.
You could take a boat downstream,
thousands of miles to the east­
or else forget the boat, and live
here by this stream forever.

《卜居》

作者:杜甫

浣花流水水西頭,
主人為卜林塘幽。

已知出郭少塵事,
更有澄江銷客愁。

無數蜻蜓齊上下,
一雙鸂鶒對沉浮。

東行萬里堪乘興,
須向山陰上小舟。
