The Temple of the First King of Zhu Reflections on an Ancient Event at West Fort Mountain Black Gown Lane
The Temple of the First King of Zhu
His heroic spirit still pervades heaven and earth. For a thousand years, he continues to inspire. His historic rise completed the tripod of powers in in the land. His great task was to restore the coinage of Han. With the help of his prime minister he founded a kingdom. But the son he raised was not a worthy heir person. How sad and pitiful are the singing-girls of the former Shu, who came dancing in front of the Wei palaces!
Reflections on an Ancient Event at West Fort Mountain
As Wang Jun's towering warship sailed eastward from Yizhow, In the imperial city morale suddenly was very low. Eight thousand feet of iron chain sunk to the river bed, While flags of surrender appeared on the city of Stone Wall. How often in this world we are touched by a past event? The mountains, as ever, pillow on the cold flowing river. Henceforth, the country is united as one nation. The relics of old forts remain in the midst of autumn reeds.
Black Gown Lane
Wild grasses and flowers grow by the Red Bird Bridge. The setting sun shines obliquely upon the entrance of Black Gown Lane. Swallows, used to perch on the front mansions of the Wang and Xie, now fly into the houses of ordinary people.
