The Tour To Three Gorges - Poem by Charles WOO
I tried in vain to re-visit the three gorges.
For the past few years, I made other choices.
The old photographs brought me joyous memory.
I was cheerful in reviewing the previous journey
The rocky precipice at 'Feng-jie' stood high and steep.
'Qu-tang' gorge made all craftsmen want to weep.
To honour the loyal 'Zhang-fei', people built a temple.
'Liu-bei' entrusted his son to 'Zhu Ge-liang' in his castle.
No tourist was found on the plank road built in ancient time.
At the cliff, all studied the inscription of verse with rhyme.
An imperial beauty blamed her king for the blind wedding.
The banished 'Qu-yuan' wrote patriotic poems, so touching!
Thick fog from 'Si-chuan' was shrouding on the 'Ning' River.
In 'Xi-ning' gorge, tourists were amazed by the rapid water.
At Mount 'Wu', it was fine one minute but rainy the next.
The shy fairy maiden therein was happy yet highly-sexed.
In the mountain pass, rocks like rare book and sword could be seen.
At last, the ferry arrived 'Ge-zhou' Dam. What a grand scene!
Misty! Good! Thrilling! Splendid! None could conclude its essence.
The scenery was too pretty to be described all at once.
