Tune:"The Charms of Niannu"
The waves of the mighty river flowing eastward
Have swept away the brilliant figures of a thousand generations.
West of the old fortress,
So people say, is Lord Zhou's Red Cliff in the time of the Three Kingdoms.
The tumbling rocks thrust into the air;
The roaring surges dash upon the shore,
Rolling into a thousand drifts of snow.
The River and the mountains make a vivid picture—
What a host of heroes once were!
And I recall the young Lord then,
Newly married to the fair younger Qiao,
His valorous features shown forth;
With a feather fan and a silken cap
Amid talking and laughing he put his enemy's ships to ashes and smoke.
While my thoughts wander in the country of old,
Romantic persons might smile at my early grey hair.
Ah, life is but like a dream;
With a cup of wine, let me yet pour a libation to the moon on the river.
