Li Bai: The River Journey from White King City ~ 李白 《早发白帝城》with English Translations


李白 《早发白帝城》


The River Journey from White King City
Li Bai

At dawn I left the walled city of White King,
Towering among the many-coloured clouds;
And came down stream in a day
One thousand li to Jiangling.
The screams of monkeys on either bank
Had scarcely ceased echoing in my ear
When my skiff had left behind it
Ten thousand ranges of hills.
