清平乐•金风细细

晏殊

金风细细,叶叶梧桐坠。绿酒初尝人易醉。一枕小窗浓睡。

紫薇朱槿花残。斜阳却照阑干。双燕欲归时节,银屏昨夜微寒。

Yan Shu – Lyrics to the Joy of Peace

Autumnal winds gently sough,
Leaf by leaf, the phoenix trees' foliage drop.
A light savor of wine can easily intoxicate,
Resting my head by a window I fall into a deep slumber.

Purple rosebushes and red roses shrivel and wilt,
The setting sun on banister shines still.
The season has come for paired swallows to make their return,
Last night behind the silvery screen I felt a slight chill.
