Jingwei determines to fill up the sea
On Fajiu Hill there grew a lot of mulberry（桑树） bushes. In the mulberry bushes lived a bird that looked like a crow, but had a colorful head, a white bill and two red claws. Its call sounded like its name: Jingwei. The bird was said to be Emperor Yandi's youngest daughter, who, while playing on the East Sea, had drowned and never returned. She had turned into Jingwei, and the bird would often carry bits of twigs（细枝） and stones all the way from the west mountains to the East Sea to fill it up.
It is so hard for a little bird to fill the sea up in such a way! But it is still commendable for its determination and tenacity（韧性，固执）.
