怀胎 Pregnancy

 

慈母怀胎经十月 饱尝辛酸苦带泪
一月怀胎如草露 担心受怕难保暮
二月怀胎如凝酥 身心变化受苦楚
三月怀胎如凝血 万分喜悦脸上写
四月怀胎渐成形 食无滋味夜难眠
五月怀胎头足具 衣带渐宽心头悸
六月怀胎六精开 为儿煎熬甘忍耐
七月怀胎骨节成 八万四千毛孔生
八月意识与九窍 胎成形俱甚微妙
九月怀胎儿在腹 母身为室血为哺
十月临盆痛难当 恰似刮骨割心肝
慈母之恩难计量 岂能将她把心伤

A loving mother carries a baby for ten lunar months and endures the agony with joy and tears
In the first month of pregnancy, the new life is like the morning dew
The mother is filled with anxiety and fear for the survival of her baby
In the second month of pregnancy, the embryo congeals like curd
With the tide of hormonal changes, the mother undergoes suffering
In the third month of pregnancy, the embryo resembles coagulated blood
Meanwhile, the mother’s face shines with pure joy
In the fourth month of pregnancy, the baby gradually takes form
During this time, the mother loses sleep and appetite
In the fifth month of pregnancy, the head and limbs develop
The mother dons maternity garb and her anxiety rises
In the sixth month of pregnancy,the six senses awaken
The mother, for the sake of her child,bears all agony willingly
In the seventh month of pregnancy,bones and joints take shape
and the baby develops numerous skin pores
In the eighth month of pregnancy,consciousness and the nine orifices emerge
as the baby’s form grows wondrously
In the ninth month of pregnancy,the new child waits in the womb
nourished by nutrients in the mother’s blood
In the tenth month of pregnancy,the mother delivers the baby in excruciating pain
The pain is like a knife to the heart and bone scraping bone
The gratitude a child owes his mother is immeasurable
How can the child bear to cause her anguish?
