175 李白 – 登金陵鳳凰臺
175 LI Bai – Atop the Phoenix Lookout of Jinling
英文翻譯 / English Translation﹕
On top of the Phoenix Terrace phoenixes used to roam,
Now gone are phoenixes, a desolate lookout remains as the river continues to flow.
Flowers and verdure of the Wu Palace are now buried under isolated trails,
The upper ranks and decorated officers of Jin are now mounds topped with growth.
The barely discernible Trident Peaks range beyond the blue skies,
The river waters part into two waterways that around the Egret Islet roll.
Floating clouds eventually the sun conceal,
Being so far away from Changan has me worried in shadow.
