Chapter 35: Ning Yu Rice Cow Song
Ning Yu is a very storyteller. Under the Qi Qigong, he is an important assistant minister like Guan Zhong and others. He was born in the cold, and he was born in his early years. He was very good at raising cattle and ox, and when he was young, he was the driver of the ox cart (carrying the ox cart) and feeding the cow.
《东周列国志》There is a story about Ning Yu’s songs with rice and cows, which are valued by Qi Gonggong.
Once again, Qi Guoxing attacked the Song Dynasty, and Qi Jungong sent Guan Zhong to lead some troops to set off.
One day, the army went to Lushan (near Linyi, Shandong), and Guan Zhongjian, a young cow, directed at him, hitting the horns and singing, and his temperament was extraordinary.
Nanshan can, white stone rotten, there are squid long and half.
Born and swearing, the short brown single is only awkward.
From the faint rice to the night, when is the long night?
This song is full of depression and pain, and Guan Zhong is amazed. He feels that this person is not a mortal. He immediately sent a servant to recruit him.
Guan Zhong asked his name and replied: "The people of Weiguo, surnamed Ning name."
Guan Zhong asked what he had learned, and Ning Wei answered the question. Guan Zhong sighed: "The hero is insulted by mud, and he does not encounter it. Why is it self-explanatory? The Chinese monarchy is behind, but after a few days, I am writing a letter to meet the monarch, and it must be reused."
A few days later, Qi Jungong’s army arrived here, and Ning Hao sang again《甯戚饭牛歌》.
Qi Weigong was very surprised to hear this song. He sent a person to Ning Yu to ask him, and after asking his name, he said: "The widows led the princes to fight the world, the people lived and worked in peace, and the grass was dip in the spring, but the day was just like this, you said It’s not awkward, and it’s said that 'the night is not good,' why do you want to ridicule the ruling party?”
Ning Yu argued that some of the words were offensive to Qi Gonggong.
