Fountain of Wine (I)
I still remember West Lake,
Where, leaning on the rails, I gazed without a break.
Oh fishing boats in twos and threes
And islets in clear autumn breeze.
Among flowering reeds faint flute-songs rose,
Startled white birds took flight in rows.
Since I left, I’ve repaired my fishing rod at leisure,
Thoughts of waves and clouds thrill me with pleasure.

The lyrics use the sound of the flute throughout the next section, with both sound and color, and the connotation is timeless. The whole lyric is a tranquil and meaningful composition, expressing the author’s love for the West Lake and his thoughts of transcendence.
