Red Cliff (赤壁怀古) - By Sodong Po
Red Cliff

The Ynagtze flows east

Washing away

A thousand ages of great men

West of the ramparts –

People say –

Are the fables Red Cliffs of young Chou of the Three Kingdoms

Rebellious rocks pierce the sky

Frightening waves rip the bank

The backwash churns vast snowy swells –

River and mountains like a painting

how many heroes passed them, once …
Think back to those years, Chou Yu –

Just married to the younger Chiao –

Brave, brilliant

With plumed fan, silk kerchief

Laughed and talked

While masts and oars vanished to flying ash and smoke!

I roam through ancient realms

Absurdly moved

Turn gray too soon –

A man’s life passes like a dream –

Pour out a cup then, to the river, and the moon

人生如梦,一尊还酹江月。 我喜欢这句! 一切随遇而安 听从命运的安排 不大悲 不大喜 平平淡淡.
