【英文译文】When spring arrives the weather turns mild. Flowers blossom, carpeting the earth. The birds sing beautiful canticles of praise. Scholars rejoice to find their names on the lists of successful examination candidates. They are finely clad and eat their fill. At such a time, if they do not turn their attention to worthy words and deeds, even if they were to live one hundred years, it would be of no more significance than living for only one day.
When springs comes together with bright sunshine and mild wind, even flowers would bloom a riot of color and birds sing beautiful songs. If a scholar, who is lucky enough to have cut a splendid figure and now has adequate days, makes no attempt to lay store on good words and deeds, it would be as if he had never lived a single day in this world even though he were to live a century.
In the cheerful springtime, all flowers show their best colors and birds sing their best songs. A scholar with reputation and affluence has not lived without leaving his legacy.
