CRIMSON SILK THREADED CARPETS〔深红色絲绸地毯〕 DOUBLE TRANSLATION

CRIMSON SILK THREADED CARPETS〔深红色絲绸地毯〕
BY BAI JUYI, TANG DYNASTY POET《红线毯》年代:唐 作者: 白居易

Crimson silk threaded carpets, hands that marveled,
深红色絲绸穿线地毯,惊奇的雙手,
Cocoon, selected and boiled, silk spools unraveled.
蚕茧,揀出和煮沸,絲绸卷軸解开。
Softened, whitened, red and blue dyed, fibers handled.
軟化,更潔白,染成红色與蓝色,纤维处理。
When dyed red, the silk threads were red etched in blue,
當染成红色,絲线被红色蝕刻在蓝色,
Weaved silk into carpet in Chambers for dance retinue.
编織絲绸在地毯,在大堂為一班舞蹈隨從員。
More than thirty meters, the palatial area by measure,
超過三十米,若要估量宫殿區,
These crimson silk threads were hand sewn for full cover.
這些红色絲线是手工缝制充滿色彩。
Multi-coloured and fluffy, with whisk, fragrance exuded,
色彩繁多,毛茸茸,用拂尘,香味發散,
Soft threading, the virtual embroidery and real eluded.
柔軟絲线,虚拟刺绣,真的難倒。
When beauties sing and dance on this velvety carpet,
當美女歌唱和跳舞在這柔綿綿的地毯上,
Silk stocking and embroidered shoes sank with every step.
絲袜和绣花鞋下沉的每一步。
The carpets of Taiyuan, their threads were coarse and hard,
太原地毯,他們的线條粗糙和硬的,
Thin bedding and brocade from Shu, quality, not avant-garde.
淡薄的臥床用品和織錦來自蜀國,質量,不是先進。
In comparison, silk threaded carpet was so warm and supple,
相比而言,絲绸穿线地毯是很温暖而柔軟,
Annually, the tenth lunar month, trade from Xuanzhou, dazzled.
年年,農歷十月,贸易來自宣州,令人眼花缭乱。
Prefect of Xuancheng, to increase production, raised the sledge,
宣城的完善,提高產量,增加雪橇,
As a minister, his call reflected his loyalty to imperial pledge.
作為一位大臣,他呼喚反映了他對帝皇的忠誠。
To carry the load into the palace, a hundred people’s burden.
携带大量進宫,要一百多人的負荷。
The silk carpet could not be rolled, it was thick and abundant.
絲绸地毯不能回滚,它是厚的和重的。
Was the perfect of Xuan Cheng aware of such hardships.?
曾是宣城太守意識到這樣的艱難吗?
Less than a meter of carpet required a thousand silk strips.
不到一米的地毯需要一千絲條。
The floor, ignorant of the cold, that the living required,
地板上,不怕冷,那是生活的所需,
Don’t steal human clothing for the ground to be attired.
不可奪取人的衣物成為范圍的盛装。
