“Ershisi fan huaxinfeng” 二十四番花信風 by Dong Gao 董誥 pt. 4


嫩黃拓纈色鮮

帶雪凝烟糝玉

喜應東風第一候,

迎來錦繡上林[1]


立春一候迎春


Delicate yellow is imprinted on silk in vivid brightness,

Bearing snow, freezing in mist, mixed with jade dust.

Joyously echoing with the east wind of the first pentad,

[They] greet the splendour of spring in the Imperial Garden.


The first pentad of Spring Commences: winter jasmine


初韶入律吐繁

料峭香舒碧葉

小圃春光敷駘蕩,

紫霞飛雨濯姿


立春二候櫻桃


[As] new grace comes in tune with the pipe,[2] flowers bud in profusion;

In chilly air, [their] fragrance diffuses in the wreath of emerald leaves.

In the small garden, spring scenery lavishly unrolls itself;

Against purple clouds, dancing rain rinses [their] silhouette fresh.


The second pentad of Spring Commences: cherry

[1] Red characters rhyme. [2] In traditional Chinese musicology, the bamboo pipes that determine pitches correspond to the solar terms and seasons. The term rulü 入律 (in tune with the pitch-pipe) thus implies the advent of a new solar term.
