Rafting near East Ru Gate, No.2

The water spiral surrounded the dyke like a jade dragon,
East of Ru Gate, peach blossoms ornament river banks.
If I could raft under the tranquil and bright moonlight,
Such joy and leisure could put ancient wiseman in jealous.
水作青龙盘石堤。 桃花夹岸鲁门西， 若教月下乘舟去。 何啻风流到剡溪， Image Courtesy: http://www.17u1u.com/fjtp/5614012126.html
