Poems of Meng Jiao
Floating Yellow River
Whoever would reach the source of immortality
Must float out on the river of chaos.
Wind drives the heavy rain as
Startled dragons foam the waves.
Chu's harp and its sighing strings.
Yue's guests and their song of tears.
It's sad how it never washes away --
The emptiness that comes through here.
The source of immortality is the Kunlun (昆仑) Mountains. In line 2, 混沌 is the primordial chaos which preceded everything in existence. "Yue's guests" are probably the Chu nobility that were driven out of Chu into Yue. This could be a combination of Meng Jiao's own wanderings in the west, written long afterwards, with the ancient south, brought in Five Gurgling's fashion.
