From the Yangzi Ferry Crossing, Gaze Into the Distance to Jing Kou

 

杨 子 津 望 京 口
北 固 臨 京 口
夷 山 对 海 濱。
江 风 白 浪 起
愁 杀 渡 头 人。
Yang Zi Jin Wang Jing Kou

Bei gu lin jing kou
Yi shan dui hai bin.
Jiang feng bai lang qi
Chou sha du tou ren.

 

From the Yangzi Ferry Crossing, Gaze Into the Distance to Jing Kou

City of Beigu overlooks Jingkou
The Yi mountains follow the coastal waters and shoreline.
River winds arise to make whitecaps
Ferry crossing workers fear for their lives.

 

Notes:

Yangzhi: Also known as the Changjiang (Long River) (Yangzi)

Beigu and Jingkou: Ancient cities now in the modern district of Zhenjiang city. The former provincial capital of Jiangsu Province is located on the southern banks of the Changjiang.
