Tangshi V. 1. (114)

Du Fu
On the Gate-tower at Youzhou

I had always heard of Lake Dongting –
And now at last I have climbed to this tower.
With Wu country to the east of me and Chu to the south,
I can see heaven and earth endlessly floating.
...But no word has reached me from kin or friends.
I am old and sick and alone with my boat.
North of this wall there are wars and mountains –
And here by the rail how can I help crying?

Bynner 114
