Written In A Dream On Jinshan
        Su Shi 1036-1101

Long River flows east,
Jinshan moon fills the halls.
At midnight the tides rise
        bearing a hot breeze,
I lie in bed
        playing a panpipe
                 down to Yangzhou.
 
Jīnshān Mèngzhōng Zuò
Sū Shì 1036-1101

Jīang dōng gǔ kè mù mián qiú,
Huì sǎn Jīnshān yuè mǎn lóu.
Yèbàn cháo lái fēng yòu rè,
Wò chuī xiāoguǎn dào Yángzhōu.

Notes:
Jinshan was originally an island near the south shore of the Changjiang in Zhengzhou, Jiangsu. During the 19th century the river silted up and moved so today Jinshan is no longer an island. The Grand Canal is just to the east heading north to Yangzhou and south to Suzhou and Hangzhou.
