Heng River Lyrics: Six Poems: No. 4

 

 

横 江 词: 六 首
海 神 来 过 恶 风 回
浪 打 天 门 石 壁 开。
浙 江 八 月 何 如 此?
涛 似 连 山 喷 雪 来。
Heng Jiang Ci: Liu Shou

(4)

Hai shen lai guo wu feng hui
Lang da tian men shi bi kai.
Zhe jiang ba yue he ru ci?
Tao si lian shan pen xue lai.

 

Heng River Lyrics: Six Poems: No. 4

Ocean deities coming and going stir up the winds to prevent my return
Waves strike the open gates and cliffs at Tianmen.
Are the August tidal waves in Zhejiang like this?
Great sections of mountain ranges sprinkled with snow.

 

Notes:

Tianmen:  Located in Hunan Province, this mountain noted for the steep and high cliffs. Today the area is a national park.

Zhejiang waves: Refers to the famous tidal bore waves on the Qiangtang River near the city of Hangzhou.
