《相见欢·金陵城上西楼》 朱敦儒

金陵城上西楼,
倚清秋。
万里夕阳垂地,
大江流。

中原乱,
簪缨散,
几时收?
试倩悲风吹泪,
过扬州。

Xiangjianhua
Zhu Dunru

From a turret on Nanjing’s city walls,
I look for scenes autumn might have to show.
The setting sun sinks to the earth’s level:
The Yangzi—aloof in its onward flow.

China is cut up; officials take flight.
Into chaos, the whole country is thrown.
When would your territory be regained?
My tears pour for those in Occupied Zone.
