  It is the ninth year of Yonghe (A.C.353), also known as the year of Guichou

  in terms of the Chinese lunar calendar.On one of those late spring days, we

  gather at the Orchid Pavilion, which is located in Shanyin County, Kuaiji

  Prefecture, for dispelling bad luck and praying for good fortune.The attendees

  of the gathering are all virtuous intellectuals, varying from young to old.

  Endowed with great mountains and lofty peaks, Orchid Pavilion has flourishing

  branches and high bamboo bushes all around, together with a clear winding brook

  engirdled, which can thereby serve the guests by floating the wine glasses on

  top for their drinking. Seated by the bank of brook, people will still regale

  themselves right by poetizing their mixed feelings and emotions with wine and

  songs, never mind the absence of melody from string and wind instruments.

  永和九年,岁在癸(guǐ)丑。暮春之初,会于会(kuài)稽山阴之兰亭,修禊(xì)事也。群贤毕至,少长(zhǎng)咸集。此地有崇山峻岭,茂林修竹,又有清流激湍,映带左右,引以为流觞(shāng)曲水,列坐其次。虽无丝竹管弦之盛,一觞一咏,亦足以畅叙幽情。

  It is such a wonderful day, with fresh air and mild breeze.Facing upwards

  to the blue sky, we behold the vast immensity of the universe; when bowing our

  heads towards the ground, we again satisfy ourselves with the diversity of

  species.Thereby we can refresh our views and let free our souls, with luxuriant

  satisfaction done to both ears and eyes. How infinite the cheer is!

  是日也,天朗气清,惠风和畅。 仰观宇宙之大,俯察品类之盛。所以游目骋(chěng)怀,足以极视听之娱,信可乐也。

  People keep coming and going, and life soon rushes to its end. Some people

  prefer to share their proud aspiration and lofty goals with close friends

  indoors, while some others choose to follow their interest and free their minds

  wherever and whenever they like. May characters vary from person to person, or

  some would rather stay peaceful while others like to live restlessly, they will

  all become delighted and satisfied once they meet something pleasant, so

  cheerful that they get unaware of their imminent old age.However, when they get

  tired of their old fancies that they’ve already experienced, and sentiment

  correspondingly accompanies the change of situation, all sorts of complicated

  feelings will well up in the heart, too. Isn’t it thought-provoking that the

  happiness we used to enjoy passes by without leaving a single trace, let alone

  that the length of life is subject to the fate, and death is inevitable for

  anybody in the end? Just as some ancient man once put it, “Death also deserves

  our attention, like what life does.”, so how can we restrain ourselves from

  grieving?

  夫(fú)人之相与,俯仰一世。或取诸怀抱,悟言一室之内;或因寄所托,放浪形骸之外。虽趣(qǔ)舍万殊,静躁不同,当其欣于所遇,暂得于己,快然自足,不知老之将至;及其所之既倦,情随事迁,感慨系之矣。向之所欣,俯仰之间,已为陈迹,犹不能不以之兴怀,况修短随化,终期于尽!古人云:

  “死生亦大矣”,岂不痛哉!

  Every time I ponder about the reasons why our predecessors would produce

  works with such inenarrable emotions, I find there seem some similarities

  between our minds. Yet I cannot help lamenting their literary masterpieces while

  I am struggling for the very cause in my innermost world. Now I come to realize

  that it has been ridiculous for me to equate death with life, long life with

  short life . The descendents view us just the way we look at our predecessors,

  and how woeful it is! Hence I write down all the names of the attendees and put

  their poetry into record. Conditions may go with the changes of time, but

  people’s emotions shall stay the same. I believe the following readers will

  still have much to mediate about life and death when appreciating this poetry

  anthology.

  每览昔人兴感之由,若合一契,未尝不临文嗟悼(jiē

  dào),不能喻之于怀。固知一死生为虚诞,齐彭殇(shāng)为妄作。后之视今,亦犹今之视昔,悲夫!故列叙时人,录其所述,虽世殊事异,所以兴怀,其致一也。后之览者,亦将有感于斯文。
