《咏河市歌者》 范成大


A Singer at the Riverside Market
Fan Chengda

How can this be called singing “Song of Weicheng” with ease?
There is in it a note crying against injustice.
A pitiful sight – the day is waning and hunger showing in his face,
Yet he is forcing out a voice in imitation of an oriole’s warbling!
