Xin Qiji: Song of the Southern Country ~《南乡子·登京口北固亭有怀》 辛弃疾 with English Translations


《南乡子·登京口北固亭有怀》 辛弃疾


Song of the Southern Country
Xin Qiji

I gaze beyond the Northern Tower in vain.
It has seen dynasties fall and rise
As time flies
Or as the endless river rolls before my eyes.

While young,
Sun had ten thousand men at his command;
Steeled in battles, he defended the southeastern land.
Among his equals in the world, who were heroer true
But Cao and Liu?
And even
Cao would have a son like Sun Zhongmou.
