Wang Anshi: Ripples Sifting Sand ~《浪淘沙令》 王安石 with English Translations


《浪淘沙令》 王安石



Ripples Sifting Sand
Wang Anshi

The two prime ministers, while young, were poor;
They had been fisherman and peasant before.
Had they not met their sovereigns wise,
In vain would raise the wind the dragon the cloud.
They helped two emperors in laughter.
Now, in a thousand years after,
Who could rival them and be proud?
