我说你是人间的四月天;

I think you are the April of this world,
笑响点亮了四面风;
xiào xiǎng diǎn liàngle sìmiàn fēng;
Your laughter has lit up all the wind,
轻灵在春的光艳中交舞着变。
qīng líng zài chūn de guāngyàn zhōng jiāo wǔzhe biàn.
So gently mingling with the spring.
你是四月早天里的云烟,
nǐ shì sì yuè zǎo tiān lǐ de yúnyān,
You are the clouds in early spring,
星子在无意中闪,
xīngzi zài wúyì zhōng shǎn,
And the stars blink now and then,
细雨点洒在花前。xì yǔ diǎn sǎ zài huā qián.
Fine rain drops down amid the flowers.
.那轻,那娉婷,你是,
nà qīng, nà pīng tíng, nǐ shì,
So gentle and graceful,
鲜妍百花的冠冕你戴着,xiān yán bǎihuā de guānmiǎn nǐ dàizhe,
You are crowned with garlands.
你是天真,庄严,
nǐ shì tiānzhēn, zhuāngyán,
So sublime and innocent,
你是夜夜的月圆。
nǐ shì yè yè de yuè yuán.
You are a full moon over each evening.
雪化后那片鹅黄,你像;
xuě huà hòu nà piàn éhuáng, nǐ xiàng;
The snow melts,with that light yellow,
新鲜初放芽的绿,你是;
xīnxiān chū fàng yá de lǜ, nǐ shì;
You look like the first budding green.
柔嫩喜悦,水光浮动着你梦中期待白莲。
róunèn xǐyuè,shuǐ guāng fúdòngzhe nǐ mèng zhōng qídài báilián.
You are the soft joy of white lotus, rising up in your fancy dreamland.
你是一树一树的花开,
nǐ shì yī shù yī shù de huā kāi,
You’re the blooming flowers over the trees,
是燕在梁间呢喃,
shì yàn zài liáng jiān nínán,
You’re a swallow twittering between the beams;
——你是爱,是暖,是希望,
nǐ shì ài, shì nuǎn, shì xīwàng,
Full of love,full of warm hope,
你是人间的四月天!
nǐ shì rénjiān de sì yuè tiān!
You are the Spring of this world!
You Are the April of This World 
Ode to Love
I think you are the April of this world,
Sure, you are the April of this world.
Your laughter has lit up all the wind,
So gently mingling with the spring.
You are the clouds in early spring,
The dusk wind blows up and down.
And the stars blink now and then,
Fine rain drops down amid the flowers.
So gentle and graceful,
You are crowned with garlands.
So sublime and innocent,
You are a full moon over each evening.
.The snow melts,with that light yellow,
You look like the first budding green.
You are the soft joy of white lotus
Rising up in your fancy dreamland.
.You’re the blooming flowers over the trees,
You’re a swallow twittering between the beams;
Full of love,full of warm hope,
You are the Spring of this world!
