Gazing to the South of the Yangtze River

Li, Yu [ 李煜 ]   (937 A.D.-978 A.D.)

    How much sorrow I had during my dream last night! I still went to the Imperial Park to hunt like old times. The carriages of my entourage were crowded around me like flowing water. The horses were spirited like dragons 1. The flowers and the moon were facing into the spring wind.

1 A dragon is a godly and auspicious symbol in China.
