Chinese poem illustration: 次北固山下 Anchored at the Foot of Mount Beigu 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 exists only during the Prosperous Tang Period.

次北固山下
王湾

客路青山外,行舟绿水前。
潮平两岸阔,风正一帆悬。
海日生残夜,江春入旧年。
乡书何处达?归雁洛阳边。
