满城尽带黄金甲[4]

The Chrysanthemum

Huang Chao

When autumn comes, the Mountain-climbing Day is nigh;

My flower blows when other blooms come to an end.

In battle array its fragrance rises sky-high,

The capital with its golden armor will blend.

The poet speaks as if he were the lord of chrysanthemums in golden armor. The Mountain-climbing Day is the ninth day of the ninth moon according to lunar calendar.
