Rafting near East Ru Gate, No.1

The white sand is illuminated by the sundown, water reflecting the sky,
The ripple is curling and eddying, with shadows of stones undulating.
I raft bathing under the moonlight, meander following the shape of the stream,
How similar is it comparing to a snowy night visit to a reclusive friend!
