Abstract

D P A ' D A R Don't know when it happens: A boisterous nation Suddenly loses its voice, loses its breath. People forget its vigorous story, Leaving only an endless expanse of snow And the offering of a sky-blotting, earth-covering white scarf. Diligent Brave Unsophisticated Wild Ignorant Backward The offhand comments of thoughtless people. A thousand years of labor and suffering Obscured by the mists of history, Now lie motionless beneath the deep, deep snows, A reminder of acts of boldness long since past . The roars of those who fought for the Central Plains, The force of those whose horses drank from the Yangtze, The majesty of those who held sway over Ba and Shu, The magnificence of the colored-pottery culture, All are now so distant. Your soul is trapped in chasms in the frozen snow, Exhausted. History--ah, history! Why have you laid your head down to sleep here? If the ascendance of the Tibetan empire Had continued to spread into the heavens like the stars It would have been absorbed into the vast emptiness of the night. The Land of Snows is like a fur coat torn from a rabid dog Faded and fallen in
