蝶恋花 柳永
伫倚危楼风细细,望极春愁,黯黯生天际。
草色烟光残照里,无言谁会凭阑意。
拟把疏狂图一醉,对酒当歌,强乐还无味。
衣带渐宽终不悔,为伊消得人憔悴。

Stilly leaning up on tower, light breeze blows.
See boundless sorrow of spring
Glooms far from skyline and grows.
Grass veils in mist, the setting sun glows.
My silence by the banister, who would be hearing?

Indulged to a blind drunk I insanely sought
Singing with wine poured
It’s forced joy after all, of dull thought.
I shall never regret, though clothes loosen on me;
I am willing, willing even to wither myself for thee.
