                                               Tây Hồ
                                            Sóng nhấp nhô
                                         Chung quanh lặng lẽ
                                         Mấy hàng cây điểm tô
                                      Trên mặt nước bao nhiêu vẻ,
                                   Mặt trời ánh chói, bóng giăng loè
                                 Giọt nước long lay, vàng xanh đẹp đẽ
                                Như cái gương tròn của mỹ nữ buồng khuê,
                              Dội bao phong cảnh của giời đất vào một khoé
                           Lại xung quanh bờ, khách tình nhân gắn bó nhời thề
                           Có khi đôi lứa trầm luân, vì mối tơ duyên trắc trở,
                              Lại có kẻ trải đời gánh vác, trông đã nặng nề
                                 Đem thân đi gửi Từ bi để ngài che chở,
                                  Cầu lấy hạnh phúc thoả kiếp muôn đời
                                    Đêm ngày bái lễ ở chùa Trấn Võ,
                                     Lại có kẻ nghiên bút theo đòi,
                                       Ấy học trò trường Bảo Hộ
                                         Nay buồn ra bờ trông,
                                            Hỏi hồ có nhớ
                                             Tới lịch sử
                                               Anh hùng
                                                Không?
