點清油


《點清油》
招子庸作,金文泰譯

清油半盞點着幾條条心?君呀,你心事咁多時,呌我點樣子去尋?睇你心頭咁猛亦都唔禁浸,你試睇吓個盞清油尚有幾深。恐怕越浸越乾油重越緊,點似得心少油多漫漫斟。你唔怕我(口譛),莫學無人恨!你重要剔起心頭正好做人!

Burn pure oil

Half a lamp-bowl of pure oil, how many wicks will it light?
My lord, your heart has so many changing seasons; tell me, how can I go in its quest?
I see your heart is fiery: there is not oil enough to submerge the wick.
Make trial and see what depth of pure oil is in yonder lamp-bowl.
Yet I fear, the more submerged, the drier the wick will be: while the oil grows all the less.
Would it were as if on the short wick more oil might be poured drop by drop!
Fear not my censure!
Be not like those graceless churls!
But, even as the lamp-wick is turned upwards, so do you take heart and play the man!
