深禁好春谁惜，薄暮瑶阶伫立。 别院管弦声，不分明。 又是梨花欲谢，绣被春寒今夜。 寂寞锁朱门，梦承恩。
------------ Gary's English translation ---------------- 《昭君怨》
深禁好春谁惜， Deep inside the forbidden city, who could appreciate the splendors of the spring? 薄暮瑶阶伫立。 Amidst the dusk, I stand for a long while waiting on the decorated steps. 别院管弦声，不分明。 A sound of music blows from some other court, I couldn't tell which. 又是梨花欲谢， Again it is about time for pear flower blossom to wither. 绣被春寒今夜。 Tonight, even it is already spring, I feel the embroidered quilt too cold. 寂寞锁朱门， Lonely and desolate, I shut up the red door. 梦承恩。 In my dream I shall be granted reception by the emperor.
