Poem by Mei Yaochen (1002 – 1060 A.D.)

Going out in the morning to herd the water buffalo in the wild,

Until the sun goes down. The bamboo flute is with me always.

Riding the water buffalo and blowing the flute casually.

Letting music flow into the wind on high and low notes.

The river is so calm and smooth like a mirror.

The enchanting music is so relaxing.

If it suits people's hearts, why play ancient music?

The Zheng State’s music is incredibly beautiful, but it is also eating away the country's wealth.

There are signs of dilapidation, like cracking roof tiles.

The inauspicious star shows the world is turbulent, and temples are scattered around.

I wrote this poem today. They said that everything is the same.


I created this painting in May 2019 in Song Dynasty’s style and quoted Song Dynasty poet Mei, Yaochen's poem to make his painting more interesting. – Jiangang Su

題識款識:

朝與牛出牧,晝與牛在野。

日暮穿林歸,長笛初在骻。

面尾騎且吹,音響未成雅。

隨風散遠近,舉調任高下。

我方江上來,平溜若鏡瀉。

悠悠經醉耳,亦足發瀟瀟。

茍能和人心,豈必奏韶夏。

鄭聲實美好,蠹情如剔剮。

況其荒敗跡,又亦甚裂瓦。

南箕成簸揚,寺孟詠侈哆。

我今留此詩,誰謂馬喻馬。
