Night Mooring On Huangpu
        Wang Zhideng 1535-1612

Waves lap the shores of Old Shanghai,
Fog wrapped city, willows obscured in mist.
Old moon not yet set, as fish tickle nets,
Fishermen launch their boats in the flood tide.
 
Huángpǔ Yèbó
Huāngpǔtān tóu shuǐ pāi tiān,
Hán chéng rú wù liǔ rú yān.
Yuè chén wèi chén yú chùwǎng,
Cháo lái yù lái rén fàng chuán.
 
Translator: Dongbo 東波

Notes:
This poem read by Amber Nee, attorney, in Shanghai. The Huangpu is the river running through Shanghai, separating Old Shanghai, or Puxi, from New Shanghai, or Pudong.
