早寒江上有怀

作者: 孟浩然

木落雁南渡,
北风江上寒。
我家襄水曲①,
遥隔②楚云端。
乡泪客中尽,
孤帆天际看。
迷津欲有问③,
平海④夕漫漫。
-----------------------

[注释]

①我家句
孟浩然家在襄阳,襄阳则当襄水之曲,故云。襄水:也叫襄河,汉水在襄樊市以下一段,水流曲折,故云襄水曲。
②遥隔句
指乡思遥隔云端。楚:襄阳古属楚国。
③迷津句
《论语微子》有记孔子命子路向长沮、桀溺问津,却为两人讥讽事。这里是慨叹自己彷徨失意,如同迷津的意思。津:渡口。
④平海
指水面平阔。古时间亦称江为海。
-----------------------

[简析]

这是一首怀乡思归的抒情诗。以兴开首,借鸿雁南飞,引起客居思归之情。中间写望见孤帆远去,想到自己无法偕同的怅惘,最后写欲归不得的郁积。
全诗情感是复杂的。诗人既羡慕田园生活,有意归隐,但又想求官做事,以展鸿图。这种矛盾,就构成了诗的内容。
-----------------------

[诗人简析]

孟浩然:(689 740),字浩然,襄州襄阳(今湖北襄樊)人。早年隐居鹿门山,四十岁入长安应进士考落第,失意东归,自洛阳东游吴 越,即所谓山水寻吴越,风尘厌洛京。张九龄出镇荆州,引为从事,后病疽卒。他是不甘隐沦而以隐沦终老的诗人。其诗多写山水田园的幽清境界,却不时流露出一种失意情绪,所以诗虽冲淡而有壮逸之气,为当世诗坛所推崇。
