By Li Bai but less popular than the other two Under the Fortress poems(1-2) by Lu Lun and Xu Hun, could be a very good reference reflecting the flavor of the time and specific poet: from romantic, positive Prosperous Tang period (li Bai) to sad realism in Late Tang period(Xu Hun). Lu Lun is sitting in between , a bit closer to Prosperous Tang.

The famous wording Behead Loulan(斩楼兰) is analysed thoroughly.

塞下曲六首·其一
李白

五月天山雪,
无花只有寒。
笛中闻折柳,
春色未曾看。

晓战随金鼓,
宵眠抱玉鞍。
愿将腰下剑,
直为斩楼兰。
