Comments about Yueh Fei
The River All Red
By the railing I stand,
Showers have stopped,
I bristle with wrath, my hair uncaging.
My eyes towards the sky,
To arms! Long I cry,
To war, for a heavenly cause! I'm raging.
My decade of deeds, as dust I deem, short of the final victory,
O'er thousands of miles, day or night, been in battle engaging.
So take it to heart, get set!
Lest, in vain, we'll regret,
Turned grey, our youthful heads, on aging.
Held captive still, our sovereigns,
Unavenged, this burning shame!
When? Why! Now is the hour!
To burn out our vengeful flame.
