Quotes about wang wei

Robbing the Tomb

The year was bad, the crops were burnt,
The dragon turned his back,
The River Wei was almost dry
The earth was brown, and cracked,
The peasant army, risen up
Destroyed the House of Chin,
Set fire to all their palaces,
Their army turned and ran.

But we were left with nothing since
The death of Chin Shi Huang,
That first and greatest Emperor
Who'd ruled across the land,
He lay within his tomb up there
Hid deep within Mount Li,
And left us all with nothing but
A distant memory.

So Wang and Tong, my neighbours
With both Zheng and Shao along,

Komm Zurck Zu Mir

bin aufgewacht kann nicht schlafen
du gehst mir nicht mehr ausm sinn
und ich wei nicht, ich wei nicht
was ich machen soll ohne dich.
kann irgendwie nicht richtig denken
kann mich einfach nicht ablenken
denn ich wei nicht, ich wei nicht
was ich machen soll ohne dich.
aufgewacht aus meinen trumen
pltzlich warst du weg.
komm zurck zu mir
was soll denn der schei?
du kannst mich doch nicht einfach so verlassen
komm zurck zu mir
kann es immer noch nicht fassen
komm zurck zu mir
was soll denn der schei?
ich hab gedacht das mit uns das wr fr immer [fr immer]
bitte lass mich nicht allein
bin aufgewacht, kann nicht schlafen

First Encounter - Ng Yen Yen

Ng Yen Yen
a character from my favourite
wang mei tiau movie?

The Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen reminds me of the characters in the Chinese period Wang Mei Tiau movies. Indeed she loves to wear a colourful shawl over her Kebaya (Malay influenced blouses with fine embellishment at the edges that accentuate the waist and long skirts. The women in Wang Mei Tiau Chinese period movies cover up their physiques, legs and hands included, in lengthy costumes. Wang Mei Tiau movies were a hit in the 60s and movies like Liang San Pe and Zhu Ying Tai and Hua Mulan are known all over the Chinese world. We met at a media dinner at the Royale Chulan Hotel in Kuala Lumpur in 2009 to introduce Jean Todt as an
ambassador of Tourism.

2008 Beijing Olympics Poem - Lin Dan versus Lee Chong Wei

lin dan, chong wei
look alike faces
shape like
shuttlecocks

eyes gleaming
like diamonds
the shine of white
velvety feathers

between their
masterful strides
the feverish desire
of two nations
to top the world

to and fro, to and fro
their hearts flew
smashing into one
lifting the other

Family History

My father left when I was one,
Or maybe two - I don't recall,
I have no memory of him now,
No memory then, now none at all.

It didn't seem important then
I had my mother, she had me,
And Uncle George would call each day,
Call by most nights, and stay for tea.

I wasn't even curious,
My world was perfect as it was,
We lived beside a village green
And travelled by the village bus.

Our house was large, a mansion set
In Parklands, much too large for us,
Whole wings were closed and boarded in,
My mother said, 'it makes less fuss! '

Verdammt Wir Leben Noch

Wers jetzt net wei

das die Welt sich um uns anders dreht
und wers net glaubt, ja der wird sehn

In A Far Away Land

In A Far Away Land, a song written by Luo Bin Wang, is sung, by John, in 1994 Australia concert. The visual footage is availabele on the John Denver "VIDEOKE" available only in Japan. Audio is available on Calypso Collection of The John Denver Collection, 1997 release by LaserLight Digital.
This song is a tradition Chinese folk song, written by Luo Bin Wang, who spent over the last 40+ years of his life studying the songs and lifestyles of the peoples in the Qing Hai area of China, an area that is similar to PrairieLands and GrassLands, where the Zhang people live a nomadic life, raising such livestock as goats and sheep.
Luo Bin Wang is considered the King of Chinese Folk/Country songs. He wrote over 100 songs. He has helped to preserve and to promote a very special part of China's social culture, and is regarded highly in China. Luo Bin Wang died in the late 1980's, but his music still lives, today.
There appear to be many more stanzas to this song, although John only sings one. In addition, the song seems to be well-known to the Chinese people, and, John's rendition appears to be somewhat humorous.
Courtesy extended to Rick Li Bao, for helping me with John's singing of this song, and for the historical perspective. If we have not done this song its due justice, please email us with any helpful modifications. Thanks.
There is a nice, pretty girl, in a far away land.
When people pass by her tent, they always stop and take a double-glimpse
(People said that she always keeps a lamb beside her)
I wish I can be a young lamb, running towards you, until I am by your side
I wish her narrow quirt always whips me gently
I wish I can be a young lamb, running towards you, until I am by your side
I wish her narrow quirt always whips me gently
I wish I can be a young lamb, running towards you, until I am by your side
I wish her narrow quirt always whips me gently

Fishing in the Wei River

In waters still as a burnished mirror's face,
In the depths of Wei, carp and grayling swim.
Idly I come with my bamboo fishing-rod
And hang my hook by the banks of Wei stream.
A gentle wind blows on my fishing-gear
Softly shaking my ten feet of line.
Though my body sits waiting for fish to come,
My heart has wandered to the Land of Nothingness.
Long ago a white-headed man
Also fished at the same river's side;
A hooker of men, not a hooker of fish,
At seventy years, he caught Wen Wang.
But I, when I come to cast my hook in the stream,
Have no thought either of fish or men.
Lacking the skill to capture either prey,
I can only bask in the autumn water's light.
When I tire of this, my fishing also stops;
I go to my home and drink my cup of wine.

Westöliche Rosen

1

die rosen werden an die hüte gekreuzigt, die lippen
der rosen fliegen fort.
die blutigen organe tropfen auf den sichtbaren
thron des halbwüchsigen westöstlichen steines und
auf die weißen totenköpfe.
die drei rasierten sommer und die drei rasierten
kreuze wackeln wie der mai auf krücken fort.
der leierleib erzählt von blutigen schlachten gegen
behaarte steine. der leierleib schießt giftigen schaum
steinerne krücken blutige nasen behaarte steine gegen
die rasierten totenköpfe.

2

der leierleib tropft blut auf die weißen vorhemden
wie in einer unverpackten schlacht und wirft seine
drei schneeballen hinter seine drei sommer.
aus den retorten rollen die totenköpfe der Itosen.

Wenn Du Es Willst

Ref.: Mir sind die Hnde gebunden, seit 1024 Stunden
Ich wei so komm ich nicht ins Ziel
Doch ich wei auch ich kann es schaffen, wenn du es willst
gib mir Kraft in diesen Tagen fr dieses Leben das ich fhr
Ich hab unendlich viele Fragen, die ich dich fragen will,
denn ich steh vor deiner Tr
Oh, diese Kriege mssen enden, lass uns deinen Frieden
sehn und nimm das Blut von unseren Hnden,
lass uns auf deinen neuen Wegen gehen
Schenk den Kindern wieder lachen,
so wie es frher einmal war
Rch die Armen und die Schwachen
lass dich sehen Herr,
denn mein Herz wei du bist da
verbirg dein Antlitz nicht vor mir und zeig dich allen ausnahmslos
denn alles bricht zusammen hier
und mein Leid ist ohne dich einfach Grenzenlos
