Tang Wan, a talented girl in the Southern Song Dynasty of China, who has been smart and sensible since she was young. She is a typical lady of the family. All elders liked this girl, includes Lu You’s mother Tang. So the family of Lu sent a luxurious hairpin as token to the family of Tang to set up a marriage relationship between Lu You and Tang Wan.
The two families were thousands of miles apart, South and North, if there is no war, Lu You and Tang Wan would not known each other. At that war years, Tang was like spring breeze in Lu’s life and warmed his heart.
The two people read books and drunk tea together in those years, they were friends and lover at the same time. When Lu was 20 years old, he married Tang and expected to be together forever.
唐琬,江南才女,自幼乖巧懂事,典型的大家闺秀,族中长辈都很喜欢这个女孩子,陆游的母亲唐氏也不例外,所以后来,陆家以一枚精美华贵的家传凤钗作为信物,与唐家定下亲事。
这两家原本相隔千里,一南一北,若是没有战争,陆游与唐琬也不会相识。风雨飘摇的年代,唐琬便是陆游生命中的一缕春风,温暖着他的心。
那些年,两人一起同读书品茗,既是知己,又是恋人。陆游二十岁那年,与唐琬成婚,彼此期盼着鸳鸯共白头。

They loved each other after marrriage, as before marriage. They read poems and are hard to be apart, so deep love make Lu’s mother worried, she thought a woman should not have so obvious literary talent or the woman would not be liked.
Lu’s mother Tang is the granddaughter of Tang Jie, the prime minister of Northern Song Dynasty. She had a long-term vision and knew what kind of wife for Lu You is best for him. It’s good to be virtuous rather than talented.
Lu’s mother is afraid that her son is lost in love and delay his study, so she forced her son to divorce Tang Wan.
Someone thought Lu’s mother dislike Tang Wan because Tang was barren. But Lu You could take concubines with his family background at that time if Tang Wan was barren, but Lu’s mother chosen to sperate them, which shows her aversion to Tang Wan.
婚后,二人琴瑟和鸣,依旧如婚前那般恩爱,共读诗书,难舍难分,如此深情引起了陆母的不满,女子太过聪慧机敏反倒不讨人喜欢。
陆母唐氏是北宋宰相唐介的孙女,她目光长远,清楚陆游需要什么样的妻子,贤惠就好,无须才华横溢。
陆母怕陆游沉溺于儿女私情,耽误了学业,便逼陆游休妻。
有人觉得陆母嫌弃唐琬的真正原因是唐琬无法生育,其实,以陆游当时的家庭背景,即便唐琬无法生育,也可以纳妾,但陆母却选择休妻,可见她对唐琬的厌恶

Lu You had let Tang lived in other yard and met her secretly, but it’s found by Lu’s mother soon. His mother acted cautiously, she didn’t get Tang out of the yard and forced Lu to marry the daughter of the family of Wang.
We don’t know why did Lu You agree with her mother, maybe he was threatened by his mother, maybe he was out of helplessness, anyway, he married Wang who he didn’y love.
Tang had reason to hate Lu, she insist her love for him even if she was divorced and had secret meeting with him while ignoring her own reputation. But Lu still left her.
陆游曾将唐琬安置在别院中,偷偷与她来往,没过多久便被陆母发觉,陆母行事谨慎,没有将唐琬赶出别院而是命陆游娶了王家千金为妻。
不知陆游为何要应下与王氏的亲事,或许是受了母亲的威胁,又或许是出于无奈,总之,他娶了王氏,娶了一个自己不爱的女子。
唐琬心中应是怨恨陆游的,她努力坚守着这段爱情,哪怕被休弃,也不顾自己的名节与陆游私会,可陆游还是离开了她。

Zhao Shicheng is the royal descent, he is gentle and responsible, the man love Tang Wan deeply and married Tang who had been divorced. He knew the love story about Tang and Lu, but he didn’t regret. He was willing to be an umbrella on the hands of Tang, and protected her from wind and rain for the rest life.
A few years later, Lu You went to Shenyuan again, he saw a fimilar figure suddenly, it was Tang Wan who he loved deeply.
Tang Wan stood beside Zhao Shicheng, she saw Lu You but couldn’t to come forward, her husband is Zhao now whether she loved this man or not, she couldn’t touch Lu You again for the family of Zhao.
赵士程本是皇族后裔,为人谦和重情,对唐琬更是痴心一片,他不顾世俗偏见,娶了被休的唐琬为妻,明知唐琬与陆游伉俪情深,也无怨无悔,他愿意成为唐琬手中的一把伞,为她遮风挡雨,默默地守护她一生一世。
数年后,陆游再去沈园,忽然看到了一个熟悉的身影,那是他曾经深爱的唐琬。
唐琬站在赵士程身旁,她看到了陆游,却不敢上前,如今,她的丈夫是赵士程,无论他爱不爱这个人,为了赵家的颜面,她都不可与陆游牵扯不清。

Zhao knew that they had feeling for each other, he picked up a glass of wine and presented it to Tang, said that, “it’s not easy to meet again, go and toast him”.
Lu drank the wine in one gulp, and both of them wept silently.
Lu wrote a poem, Chai Toufeng, on the wall after Tang left. He put unspoken words in the poem.
They are forced to sperate at that year, happy time become sad days. He hates his weakness for so many years.
The bad love story destroied the four people, Lu You, Tang Wan, Zhao Shicheng, Wang, no one is happy, no one get love. Who is wrong? Lu’s mother Tang, also Lu You.
赵士程知道二人余情未了,他拿起一杯酒,递到唐琬手中,轻声道:“重逢不易,去敬他一杯酒吧。”
陆游将酒一饮而尽,二人皆落下苦泪。
唐琬走后,陆游在墙壁上写下了《钗头凤》,将那些未说出口的话写在诗中。
当年,他们被迫分离,一场欢情变薄情,离别数年,满怀愁怨,他无时无刻不在怨恨自己年少的软弱。
错错错,这段错误的感情毁了四个人,陆游、唐琬、赵士程、王氏,谁也不幸福,谁也不曾欢喜,到底是谁错了?是陆母唐氏,也是陆游。

Tang Wan went to Shenyuan again after one year. Tears poured down her face when Tang saw Lu’s poem, she missed a whole year to get the words on the wall, it’s late, too late.
Tang was seriously ill at that time, breathing as old woman, she couldn’t pursue her love even if she wanted, the body did not support.
She use her pen to wrote a answer poem for Chai Toufeng.
一年后,唐琬再次来到沈园,看见陆游的题词,顿时泪如雨下,她错过了整整一年,如今才看到墙壁上的题词,太晚,一切都太晚。
此时唐琬已身患重病,气若游丝,即便有心去追寻爱情,身体也不允许。
她提笔,在旁和了一阙《钗头凤》。

Her life is too difficult and there are so many worries in her mind, the missing and deep love had to be hidden.
Zhao Shicheng was sad when he read Tang’s answer poem to Lu, his love and accompanying are no match for Lu’s Chai Toufeng. He didn’t get her love althrough he had given so much to her.
At that autumn of the year, Tang Wan left the cold world with regret, her husband Zhao didn’t remarry since Tang’s death.
她一生太难,心事无法诉说,最终,那份思念与深情,也只能瞒瞒瞒!
当赵士程看到唐琬的《钗头凤》时又何尝不心伤?他对唐琬多年的深情,终究不敌一首《钗头凤》,哪怕他付出再多的爱,也从未得到过他的心。
同年清秋,唐琬带着遗憾离开了薄情的人世,赵士程终身未续弦。

When Lu was old, he lived beside Shenyuan. The old man would go to the template and look over every time he enter the city. Decades later, the words on the wall became blurred, Lu was still in tears when he saw these words.
After forty years since Tang’s death, Lu stood on the bride and looked at the spring water, his thought went back to the young years. He and Tang read opems together, the lake reflected her shadow, her smile was so beautiful. The man didn’t forget his love story about Tang even after so many years.
陆游年迈之时,住在沈园附近,每次入城,必定登寺眺望。如今,几十年过去,墙壁上的字已然模糊不清,可他还是老泪纵横。
不知不觉,她离世已四十年,他站在桥上,望着春水碧波,思绪回到年少之时。曾经,他们二人在此共读诗书,湖水映着她的倩影,她的一颦一笑都那么美。这么多年过去,他依旧没有忘记他们的故事。

After more years, the old man could’t walk s step although the destination was so close. In the old age, he counld only go back to Shenyuan in his dream.
There are wintersweets in the Shenyuan in his dream, but he couldn’t find Tang and see her again althrough he was dying to meet her.
Lu thought that perhaps Tang still hated him. Blame his weakness, blame him for breaking his promise, blame him for leaving her at that year.
又过了数年,年迈的陆游已不能行走,路途如此近,却难行一步。风烛残年的他也只能在梦中回到沈园。
梦中,沈园盛开着梅花,可惜,只见梅花不见人,故人已经化为尘土,他多想在梦中与她见一面,可她却未入梦。
陆游想,或许唐婉还在怨恨他吧!怨他当年的软弱,怨他背弃了誓言,怨他离去多年。

Lu You knew he would die when he was 84 years old, at that spring, he came to Shenyuan with helping from his servants, and wrote the last poem on the wall.
After Tang’s death for over sixty years, she was still loved by Lu You. Love a person even if he went at the end of life, never stop.
At the second year, Lu You died with his love for Tang.
八十四岁那年,陆游自知时日无多,那年春天,在仆人的搀扶下,他再游沈园,为沈园写下最后一首诗。
唐琬离世六十多年,依旧被人爱着,念着。穷尽一生爱一个人,哪怕地老天荒,也不曾断。如此执念,只佩服陆游一人。
次年,带着对唐琬的爱,陆游病逝。
