[注释]

  1. 墨梅:水墨画的梅花。

  2. 洗砚池:写字、画画后洗笔洗砚的池子。王羲之有“临池学书,池水尽黑”的传说。这里化用这个典故。

 

[简析]

  这是一首题画诗。墨梅就是水墨画的梅花。诗人赞美墨梅不求人夸,只愿给人间留下清香的美德,实际上是借梅自喻,表达自己对人生的态度以及不向世俗献媚的高尚情操。

  开头两句“我家洗砚池头树,朵朵花开淡墨痕”直接描写墨梅。画中小池边的梅树,花朵盛开,朵朵梅花都是用淡淡的墨水点染而成的。“洗砚池”,化用王羲之“临池学书,池水尽黑”的典故。诗人与晋代书法家王羲之同姓,故说“我家”。

  三、四两句盛赞墨梅的高风亮节。它由淡墨画成,外表虽然并不娇妍,但具有神清骨秀、高洁端庄、幽独超逸的内在气质;它不想用鲜艳的色彩去吸引人,讨好人,求得人们的夸奖,只愿散发一股清香,让它留在天地之间。这两句正是诗人的自我写照。王冕自幼家贫,白天放牛,晚上到佛寺长明灯下苦读,终于学得满腹经纶,而且能诗善画,多才多艺。但他屡试不第,又不愿巴结权贵,于是绝意功名利禄,归隐浙东九里山,作画易米为生。“不要人夸颜色好,只留清气满乾坤”两句,表现了诗人鄙薄流俗,独善其身,孤芳自赏的品格。

  这首诗题为“墨梅”,意在述志。诗人将画格、诗格、人格有机地融为一体。字面上在赞誉梅花,实际上是赞赏自己的立身之德。
