朱彝尊《清平樂·題水墨南瓜》“To the Tune ‘Joy of Pure Peace’, inscribed on a painting of pumpkins” by Zhu Yizun [1629-1709]

牽絲引蔓,

野外無人管。

纔見草簷花一半,

又早青黄堆滿。 

Twining tendrils, trailing vines

Sit in the wild with no one caring.

[I] just found [their] leafy hut half in blossom,

And soon a wealth of green and yellow.


今年榖貴民飢,

村村剥盡榆皮。

合付田翁一飽,

全家婦子嘻嘻。

In such a year of costly grains and hungry men,

Each village peels off elm bark, leaving nothing.

[These pumpkins] will make a good meal for a farmer,

And a reason to smile for his wife and children.


*From Zhu Yizhun, Pushuting ji 曝書亭集, Wenyuange Siku Quanshu 文淵閣四庫全書 (Shanghai: Shanghai guji chubanshe, 1987) edition, vol. 1318, 28.24b-25a: https://ctext.org/library.pl?if=en&file=50485&page=149.
