“Ershisi fan huaxinfeng” 二十四番花信風 by Dong Gao 董誥 pt. 8



連春接夏颺微

麗萼參差紫間

香氣氤氳霏嫩葉。

化工裁剪出芳[1]


驚蟄三候薔薇


Joining spring to summer, fluttering in the breeze,

Magnificent flowers, here and there, don purple and red.

A brume of pleasant scent misting up their tender leaves,

Creation’s craft of cutting stands out from the floral cluster.


The third pentad after Awakening of Insects: multiflora rose


臨風濯錦艷三

裊娜香肌丰韻

漫擬太真亭北立。

畫圖省識效輕


春分一候海棠

Against the wind, rinsed embroidery [2] shines through the three vernal months,

The graceful bearing of [their] elegant, fragrant skin now freshened.

[As they] stand in the north of the pavilion in a casual imitation of Taizhen, [3]

A painter understands [they] are trying to smile like her.


The first pentad after Spring Equinox: crabapple

[1] Coloured characters rhyme. [2] Zhuojin 濯錦 (rinsed embroidery) is a type of luxury embroidery produced in the Chengdu region of Sichuan. [3] Taizhen is the Daoist name of Yang Yuhuan 楊玉環 (719-756), the beloved consort of Emperor Xuanzong of Tang 唐玄宗 (685-762, ruling 712-756) and one of the most renowned beauties of ancient China.
