刘秉忠 Liu Bingzhong

Liu Bingzhong (Chinese: 劉秉忠) (1216–1274), or Liu Kan (Chinese: 劉侃) was a Yuan dynasty statesman and writer, Yuan Dynasty court adviser and architect. He was born in Ruizhou (Rui prefecture), during the Jin Dynasty. In 1233, he entered the Jin's bureaucracy. He still was an officer after the Mongol Yuan Dynasty replaced the Jin following the Mongol–Jin wars, but later he became a monk. However his teacher thought that his talent should not be buried, so he recommended Liu Bingzhong to Kublai Khan, to become his adviser. During this period, he was extolled as the Five Talented in Xintai. He was credited with occult powers which allowed him to foretell the future and so assist military operations.[1] Liu had a paramount influence on Yuan era city designs, and he is known to have planned both the Yuan capital of Dadu and its summer capital Xanadu (Shangdu).

干荷叶 Tune: Dried Lotus Leaves

Author: -- 刘秉忠 Liu Bingzhong
干荷叶,
Lotus leaves dried
色苍苍,
In color turned from green to grey,
老柄风摇荡。
Old stems in the wind sway.
减了清香,
With fragrance lost, they are in yellow dyed.
越添黄。
Last night frost chilled their dream.
都因昨夜一场霜,
They look now lonely on the autumn stream
寂寞在秋江上。
干荷叶,
Dried lotus leaves
色无多,
Whose color grieves,
不奈风霜锉。
Can't bear the bite of hoary frost.
贴秋波,
On autumn waves they're lost
倒枝柯。
With their stems broken.
宫娃齐唱采莲歌,
The palace maids awoken
梦里繁华过。
Sing songs of lotus gathered on the stream,
南高峰,
Southern Peak high,
北高峰,
Northern Peak high,
惨淡烟霞洞。
The Cave of Rainbow Clouds utter a dreary sigh.
宋高宗,
The Song Emperor High
一场空。
In vain has now gone by.
吴山依旧酒旗风,
On Southern Hills the wineshop streamers fly
两度江南梦。
Still as of yore,
