Boating near the Han River

It connects Chu frontiers with Xiang River,  

and links the nine waters with Mount Jingmen.  

The river’s flow exceeds terrestrial domain,  

and leaves the outline of far mountains indistinct.  


Ahead the village center floats upon riverbank,  

and strong waves shake distant skies.  

Xiangyang’s weather is great,  

I’ll linger drunk like old Shan Jian.
