THOUGHTS OF OLD TIME AT WEST FORT MOUNTAIN
Since Wang Jun brought his towering ships down from Yizhou，
The royal ghost has pined in the city of Nanjing.
Ten thousand feet of iron chain were sunk here to the bottom ——
And then came the flag of surrender on the Wall of Stone……
Cycles of change have moved into the past，
While still this mountain dignity has commanded the cold river；
And now comes the day of the Chinese world united，
And the old forts fill with ruin and with autumn reeds.
