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.

昔人已乘黄鹤去,此地空余黄鹤楼。

Long ago one’s gone riding the yellow crane, all that remained is the Yellow Crane Tower.

黄鹤一去不复返,白云千载空悠悠。

Once the yellow crane left it will never return, for one thousand years the clouds wandered carelessly.

(x2)

Chorus

晴川历历汉阳树,芳草萋萋鹦鹉洲。

The clear river reflects each Hanyang tree, fragrant grasses lushly grow on Parrot Island.

日暮乡关何处是? 烟波江上使人愁。

At sunset, which direction leads to my hometown? One could not help feeling melancholy along the misty river.
