The mother river of Taizhou people - Fengcheng River

The mother river of Taizhou people is Fengcheng River, also called Chenghe. She has a history of thousands of years and has nurtured dozens of generations of Taizhou people. Unlike rivers in other places, it is not a natural formation, but an artificial river, which is used for moat. Due to the long history and continuous artificial expansion, the river has become wider and deeper, forming the current scale, like a huge ribbon surrounding the old city, adding infinite aura to the city. In the old Taizhou, in addition to the city river, the city was also dotted with various rivers. Many people lived by the river, just like Zhouzhuang in southern Jiangsu. Many place names such as Tax Bridge, Dalian Bridge and Shengxian Bridge indicate that there are river place. Unfortunately, after liberation, these rivers were gradually filled up. When I was a child, I studied in Dongfeng Primary School. Every week, my class asked our elementary school students to hand over the charcoal slag of the briquettes at home, and collect a certain amount. Organized by the school, students from each class lined up with the charcoal slag to go to the back of the Xingguang Lighting Factory. Where the Weishui vegetable farm is located, the charcoal residue is used to fill a river there. I clearly remember that there was a hollowed-neck old locust tree that had grown for hundreds of years by the river. In the 1980s and 1990s, the social and economic development had made great strides, and the few remaining river channels were gradually filled up and turned into foundations and pavements. In the late 1990s, when I was a part-time graduate student at Soochow University, I saw that there were well-regulated rivers in the middle of and beside the roads in Suzhou, which added a lot of style to the city. I asked my classmates in Suzhou to know that Suzhou has also experienced the city. The construction, whether to maintain the river course or fill the river course, was a debate. Later, the public was widely consulted. Most of the citizens believed that these river courses should be maintained. Therefore, if we go to the old city of Suzhou, we will see that there are rivers and roads in Suzhou City. There is a beautiful scene of the river beside the river and the road. If we could keep the dense river channels in these cities of old Taizhou connected with the rivers surrounding us, what a wonderful scenery, how beautiful our scenery would be. What a pity! These sights don't exist anymore. If they existed, Taizhou would be a veritable Venice of the East. Fortunately, after the establishment of the prefecture-level city, I finally realized the importance of the river, and made several protective dredging and dredging of the city river, and the grand view of the city river today. Dongcheng River is a living water river, connecting the river to the sea. When Taizhou people do not draw water from the Yangtze River, the tap water they eat is the city river water. The water surface of Dongcheng River is very wide. It is said that it is a river, but it is actually more like a lake. The water surface is always calm. In the past, people in Taizhou washed their clothes in the river. There is a small pier near the current Chinese Medicine Hospital of the Skin Research Institute. In the past, every night or early morning, women would bring a basket of clothes or bed surfaces and hammering sticks while hammering at the mouth of the pier. Clothes and bedside while talking loudly. There are many such piers on the Dongcheng River. In summer, people swim in the Dongcheng River, and the river is covered with colorful men and women. She is a natural swimming pool that is better than a seaside swimming pool for Taizhou people. For a swimmer, someone can touch a big river mussel with a shove, and someone who touches a lot can touch a tub a day. Someone by the river was holding a net and a screw. In winter, a thin layer of ice forms near the river bank. One winter in the 1980s, it was very cold, and the entire river was frozen, and there were some daring people walking on the ice carefully. People also threw many bricks and tiles on the ice. The wide and calm Dongcheng River always brings infinite reverie. I lived in Yimiao Street when I was a child, and later moved to Tianlu Street, which is close to the Dongcheng River. I often played in the Dongcheng River and the windbreak forest by the Dongcheng River. I have a deep affection for the Dongcheng River. When my family lived on Tianlu Street, I sometimes encountered troubles. At night, I ran to the Dongcheng River alone and stared at the Dongcheng River. The lights of the wood furniture factory in the distance shone on the water, and I saw the golden waves on the Dongcheng River. , Unpredictable, restless heart can gradually be calm. Dongcheng River has many beautiful legends. There is a legend that two large bronze bells once flew down from the sky, one male and one female, one fell into Zhonglou Lane, which is the origin of Zhonglou Lane, and the other fell into Chenghe. During the process of silting, it was discovered. Later, it was sent to Mount Tai in Taishan Park, which is the origin of the big bronze bell in Taishan Park. There is also a legend that a few swimmers felt very scared when they saw a few beautiful girls walking into the depths of the water with golden scythes by the river. Some people say that there are water monkeys in the Dongcheng River, which are so powerful that they can drag people into the water and drown. Soft water is actually very dangerous. Every year people are drowned in the city river, and the old man said that this is the drowned person looking for a substitute. Therefore, those who swim in the Dongcheng River must pay attention to the risks. Among the people who drown every year are those who know water. The city river water nourishes generations of Taizhou people. Every Taizhou person has a more or less connection with Chenghe. She is the mother river of Taizhou people, and every Taizhou people has the blood of Chenghe flowing through them. The beautiful geomantic terrain formed by her has guarded the growth of generations of Taizhou people and supported Taizhou people to go further and higher.
