Wang ZhiHuan


The sun beyond the mountains glows;

The Yellow River seawards flows.

You can enjoy a grander sight

By climbing to a greater height.

On the Stork Tower

The Yellow River soars into white clouds,

The lonely Great Wall lost amid mountains proud.

Why should the Mongol flute complain no willows grow?

Beyond the Pass of Jade no vernal wind will blow.

Out of the Great Wall
