焚書坑 章碣 (837-?)

竹帛煙銷帝業虛
關河空鎖祖龍居
坑灰未冷山東亂
劉項原來不讀書

Book Burning Pit                    Zhang Jie (837 – ?)  江紹倫譯

Smoke of burning classics rise to signal the empire’s fall
Wall gates and rivers fail to guard the imperial dragon hall
Before the burning pit cooled the rebels east of the mountain is gathering speed
The leaders Liu and Xian are not interested  to read
