人生若只如初见 Long gone are the days when we first met,
何事秋风悲画扇 Present is the hand fan left forlorn by summer.
等闲变却故人心 How is it that  promises are so easy to forget,
却道故人心易变 While you glibly accuse the heart as the denier ?

骊山语罢清宵半 The midnight oath you made on Mount Li,
泪雨霖铃终不怨 Echoes as a mockery on this rainy night.
何如薄幸锦衣郎 Even Emperor Ming was a greater  man in deed,
比翼连枝当日愿 When he endeavored to keep his love alive.

后一节皆用典, 前一句意译,后一句直译.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

纳兰性德----人生若只如初见, What has made him so romantic? I know he was an officer in the Qing Dynasty, but so romantic.
Boating on the Houhai River...在后海泛舟...

Thank you, ruotong. Here is another version I composed.

灵气清奇塞外纳

兰质华章灿如星

性本淡泊轻富贵

德艺贞良早殒悲


Great! I love yours more!
