Spring South of the River
Du Mu

Thousand li orioles call green reflect river
Water village hill rampart wine banner wind
South dynasty 480 temples
How many pavilions mist rain in
Orioles call for a thousand li, green's reflected in the river;
Waterside village; hillside rampart; wine; a banner in the wind.
In the time of the southern dynasties, there were four hundred and eighty temples;
How many pavilions there are now in the mist and rain.
