[注释]

  1.寒食:节名,在清明前两日。古人每逢这节日,前后三天不生火,只吃冷食物,故称“寒食”。

  2.御柳:御苑中的杨柳。

  3.“日暮”两句:据说汉时寒食禁火,朝廷特赐侯家蜡烛。“传”,挨家传赐。“五侯”,一说指东汉外戚梁冀一族的五侯。另一说指东汉桓帝时宦官单超等同日封侯的五人。

  4.斜:读(xi),与“花”“家”押韵。

  

[简析]

 

  这首诗描写宫廷寒食节的情况。诗人以汉喻唐,揭露了封建统治阶级的特权及宦官得宠专权的腐败现象。

   开头一句“春城无处不飞花”。“春城”指春天里的都城长安。“飞花”即花瓣纷纷飘落,点明暮春季节。“无处不”,用双重否定构成肯定,进而写出整个长安 柳絮飞舞,落红无数的迷人春景。第二句“寒食东风御柳斜”是写皇宫园林中的风光。“御柳”是指御苑里的柳树。当时风俗寒食日折柳插门,清明这天皇帝还要降 旨取榆柳之火赏赐近臣,以示恩宠。所以诗人在无限的春光中特地剪取随东风飘拂的“御柳”。

   诗的前两句写的是白昼,后两句则是写夜晚:“日暮汉宫传蜡烛,轻烟散入五侯家。”“日暮”就是傍晚。“汉宫”是借古讽今,实指唐朝的皇宫。“五侯”一般 指东汉时,同日封侯的五个宦官。这里借汉喻唐,暗指中唐以来受皇帝宠幸、专权跋扈的宦官。这两句是说寒食节这天家家都不能生火点灯,但皇宫却例外,天还没 黑,宫里就忙着分送蜡烛,除了皇宫,贵近宠臣也可得到这份恩典。诗中用“传”与“散”生动地画出了一幅夜晚走马传烛图,使人如见蜡烛之光,如闻轻烟之味。 读到这里我们就会联想到“只许州官放火,不许百姓点灯”这句俗语,从而更好地领会诗歌的主题。

这首诗善于选取典型的题材,引用贴切的典故对宦官得宠专权的腐败现象进行讽刺。虽然写得很含蓄,但有了历史典故的暗示,和中唐社会情况的印证,读者还是能了解诗的主题的。
