Yanwang Song

"Han Shu" said: "Yan Lu Wang Dan, the fourth son of Emperor Wu.

When Emperor Zhaodi failed to work out a plan, the evil fortune could be seen.

Yancang knows his plan and tells him what it is.

Wang worry-yi, buy wine Wanzai Palace, meeting guests, courtiers, concubines and concubines to sit and drink.

Wang Zige, Mrs. Huarong danced, and all the sitters wept.

Wang Sui committed suicide.

” Going back to the empty city, the dog does not bark, the chicken does not crow, He Guang-li, knows no one in the country.

The Original Poetry:

燕王歌 杂歌谣辞三

《汉书》曰:“燕剌王旦,武帝第四子也。

昭帝时,谋事不成,妖祥数见。

燕仓知其谋,告之,由是发觉。

王忧懑,置酒万载宫,会宾客群臣妃妾坐饮。

王自歌,华容夫人起舞,坐者皆泣。

王遂自杀。

”归空城兮狗不吠,鸡不鸣,横术何广广兮,固知国中之无人。
