Six Poems of River Heng, No.2
Author: Bai Li(AD701-AD762, Tang Dynasty)
Translator: Lei Fan 2016 in Chicago
The tide fades south passing Xunyang,
Niuchu is situated more strategically than Madang.
I want to cross river Heng but fear the stormy waves,
The sorrow lasts thousand miles hauled by the flow.
