    Tied to a pear tree, the donkey leaned against the tree and got hit by a fallen pear.

    「系」與「繫」通用 ^^

    《說文. 卷十三》《系部》: 「系:繫也。」

    《釋名》《釋衣服》: 「系,繫也,相連繫也。 」

    《後漢書. 紀》《光武帝紀下》: 「 於赫有命,系隆我漢。」

    對聯平仄問題不是絕對的,在許多情況下可以變通。如對聯中出現疊字、複字、回文、諧趣、音韻等等,可以視具體情況而定。有的因聯意需要時也可以例外。 ^^

    上聯之「系」, 估計是錯別字, 應是「繫」, 作動詞用, 與下聯「站」

    字才可詞性上配對!

    此外, 「驢」與「雞」皆是平聲, 失去「仄起平收」之對聯格律!
