The Land of Throne
By Muzi Yu
Tr Sibin Lu
Three thousand of beauties in my back court，
Win or lose,
I’ll keep my air of Majesty and Lord —
The north of the Yangtze is all for me to hunt，
And the south, to be my Peach Blossom Resort，
Sunny in the east and snow in the west
Thus can match the Great Wall, the long fort.
Want heat, just put my feet on the Red Cliff battlefield
Soft warmth in need, on the West Lake aboard.
Well, what a pretty landscape, my land !
All in a painting on a piece of Luoyang paper I found
A drop of the brush, all the river is red,
A wave of my arm, the sky dome over the Yinshan Mount so broad!
One millennium I’ll tour the land far and near
One millennium more, wooing the beauty I dear
If not enough, I'll play for thousand years
And borrow other seven countries for sure
Without forgetting to invite Xishi so pure
To meditate on a straw-bed in retire.
