Tangshi III. 1. (65)

Yuan Jie
A Drinking Song at Stone-fish Lake

Stone-Fish Lake is like Lake Dongting –
When the top of Zun is green and the summer tide is rising.
...With the mountain for a table, and the lake a fount of wine,
The tipplers all are settled along the sandy shore.
Though a stiff wind for days has roughened the water,
Wine-boats constantly arrive....
I have a long-necked gourd and, happy on Ba Island,
I am pouring a drink in every direction doing away with care.

Bynner 65
