波斯短歌行译笺 其六十九 当代·钟锦
七言绝句 押庚韵
昼夜界成纵与横,谁家有此一棋枰?
吾人为子随翻覆,覆尽挥将笥里行
注:○棋枰棋局也。司空图丁巳元日》诗:“移居药圃,耗志在棋枰。”○翻覆:《文选·孔稚圭北山移文》:“岂期终始参差苍黄翻覆。”吕延济注:“翻覆不定也。”此言棋子去取也。○笥:棋笥也。
But helpless Pieces of the Game He plays
Upon this Chequer-board of Nights and Days;
Hither and thither moves, and checks, and slays,
And one by one back in the Closet lays.
