Watching Dongting Lake
Liu Yuxi (Tang)
The blended light of autumn moon and lake is serene,
The water surface like a mirror dim lurks in view.
The hill and the surrounding waves, from far when seen,
Resemble a silver plate crowned with a snail of blue.
On the autumn evening the moon shines clear and bright; the lake lies calm and still. In the moonlight the smooth lake reflects the silvery moon and is lost in the peaceful, misty beauty of the night. The first two lines of the poem describe the scenes of the moon in the sky, the lake in the moonlight and the fused sky and water.
Next appears the entire view of the lake with the green hills and the fine sweep of blue waters blended like a long shot as shown in a film, for the moonlight makes Jun Hill all the more green and luxuriant. The next two lines depict the lake like a gem set in a ring. The varied views and the vivid figures of speech in the poem fully show the poet''s intense love for nature and at the same time reveal the great harmony between man and nature.
