Traditional Chinese Song - Yellow Crane Tower 黄鹤楼
Written by Sui Hao 崔颢 (Tang Dynasty)
Performed by Tong Li 童丽
*Yellow Crane Tower (Huáng Hè Lóu) is a famous and historic tower, first built in 223 AD. The tower stands on Sheshan (Snake Hill), at the bank of Yangtze River in Wuchang District, Wuhan, in Hubei province of China.
Long ago one’s gone riding the yellow crane, all that remained is the Yellow Crane Tower.
Once the yellow crane left it will never return, for one thousand years the clouds wandered carelessly.
The clear river reflects each Hanyang tree, fragrant grasses lushly grow on Parrot Island.
At sunset, which direction leads to my hometown? One could not help feeling melancholy along the misty river.
