李少石 《南京书所见》





On Seeing What Happened in Nanjing
Li Shaoshi

His loyal heart was broken quiet,
As dismembered was our domain;
His righteous spirit’ll e’er be bright,
Outshining both the moon and sun.
He did not choose to die in bed,
In everyman’s common style,
Being a hero, he strode ahead
To execution, with a smile.
