Chinese Calligraphic Art Poem Verse on Red Cliff by Su Shi 书苏东坡赤壁怀古
In the fifth year of Emperor Shenzong (神宗)'s Yuanfeng (元豐) reign (1082) in the Northern Song period, more than 800 years after the epic Battle of Red Cliff, the famous poet-official Su Shi (Dongpo) and friends made two trips to Red Nose Cliff (赤鼻磯) west of the town Huangzhou (黃州). To commemorate these trips, Su wrote two rhapsodies that would earn him universal praise in the annals of Chinese literature: "Odes to the Red Cliff."
Forever eastward the great river runs
Scouring away all trace of history's sons.
Tis said of the Three Kingdoms, and Lord Zhou
He dallied on the Red Cliffs long ago.
Where jumbled rocks rise up to piece the cloud
And great waves pound the bank with froth like snow.
The scenery so quaint - so many dead!
That year when Zhou to Qiao was newly wed
With all the gifts of looks and rank endowed
With feathered fan and ribbons on his head
He talked and laughed while masts and oars below
In smoke enveloped, found an ashen shroud.
Bear with me as I dream; life passes soon.
Toast the eternal river and the moon.
