    Many of you will remember my popular poem 'The Huangpu River' which I posted a little while ago. I have written a sequel, which is also a love poem.

    The Huangpu River 2

    Let us walk beside the river,
    Let us eat a meal of liver
    At a street stall on the Bund.
    Let us spend some of your trust fund.

    Shanghai is the place for us,
    Whether we take the train or bus,
    To this city we will move,
    With its galleries like the Louvre.

    The Huangpu River is like our love,
    It never fails when push comes to shove.
    The boats that pass through in the night
    Are like the fact that we never fight.

    The buildings on the river bank
    Look like a canvas, pure and blank,
    The sky above is filled with stars -
    Shanghai, the city that is ours.
