Chinese poem illustration: 次北固山下/ Anchored at the Foot of Beigu Mount by Wang Wan

The starter gun of Prosperous Tang Period(盛唐), the true spirit of the time, taken as motto by a premier minister of the time, and still a very popular motto for today’s Chinese. This is all this poem about.

By depicting a sailing at Yangtze river mouth, under mount Beigu, the sophisticated wording shows the long eye-sighted, confident and full of vigor Tang people, which never revived after Tang.
