Climbing Yazhou Town Wall
*****Li Deyu 787-849

Alone in tower I face Changan,
For birds it's a half year journey.
Green mountains don't let me leave,
No way to escape this coiling city wall.
 
Dēng Yázhōu Chéng Zuò
Dú shàng gāo lóu wàng dìjīng,
Niǎo fēi yóu shì bànnián chéng.
Qīngshān sì yù liú rén zhù,
Bǎi zā qiān zāo rào jùnchéng.

Notes:
Shortly after being exiled to Yazhou, Li Deyu 787-849 died here.
