Based on Theme-Rheme theory, an important theory of Systemic Functional Linguistics, this paper is an attempt to analyze the poem Chun Xiao and its English versions. The analyses show that Theme-Rheme theory provides the Chinese-English poetic translation appreciation with a new angle. And it also proves the applicability of Theme-Rheme theory in poetic analysis, so it is an important linguistic instrument which can be applied to the research and practice of poetic translation.
