    The Tune of Linjiangxian By Yang Shen (Ming Dynasty)

    The Yangzi River overwhelmingly flows eastward,
    Heroes, as if those waves, one after another,
    rise and fall then die away from the history river.
    No matter right or wrong, success or failure,
    things just exist for a sec. and then disappear.
    But green mountains always stand there,
    and the sun set at the same spot, not elsewhere.
    The grey haired man who fishes and collects firewood
    by the river, has got used to every season.
    by the river, has got used to summer and winter.
    When my friends visit me, in a happy mood,
    we talk, laugh, and drink some wine thick,
    those history matters will be only a chatting topic.
