A river clears enough to see the bottom
A canoe left across on it.
There’s no loneliness,
But the peacefulness of silence.
Who knows it's a formation of confuse?
Whose acquaintance across the side?
People loves to rush around confusion
Loves to anaesthetize themselves in the crowd.
But I’m acknowledging this poetic scenery.
even fond of the symbolic pureness of this loneliness.

You go spring river now wide.
Sunset travel sail where moor.
End of sky one look break person heart  
Jingzhou and Dongwu are both on the water,
You travel down the river in spring, now the level is high.
A sail is underway at sunset, what place will it moor?
Looking to the end of the sky can break a man's heart. 舢舨

Troubadour “Rusticate” poem, lazily drunken in a towel, concerns and suffers are all gone, who else is frequent. The Chu Yang book yesterday, words in there seem so true. Suppose you have just left your own country, I try not to maze, The Quartet is impossible, plenty of things there. Now you're happy, Is it not far from the dust, founded,friends aren’t in shanghai.

Loves to anaesthetize themselves in the crowd!” The other side of the shore represents the realm of nirvana.To synthesis the two poem above,The last two paragraphs from “Alone” indicates : But I’m acknowledging this poetic scenery, even fond of the symbolic pureness of this loneliness. Mr. Erdai is explaining the easy and without anyone’s disturbance way of living, as likewise to the blossom fields.
