Written at an Inn in Lin'an
Lin Sheng fl. 1190

Hills upon hills pavilions beyond pavilions
The singing and danacing never stop at West Lake
Revelers are so drunk on the warmth
They mistake Hangzhou for Bianzhou
 
Tí Línān Dǐ
Lín Shēng fl. 1180

Shān wài qīng shān lóu wài lóu,
Xīhú gēwǔ jǐshí xiū?
Nuǎn fēng xūn dé yóurén zuì,
Zhí bǎ Hángzhōu zuò Biànzhōu.
 
Translator: Red Pine-Bill Porter 赤松
