LISTEN TO THE TEXTLISTEN TO SHIRLEY PLAY & SING THE POEM
Hi, friends, do you still remember the poem Hui Xiang Ou Shu -- Casual Writing After Returning Hometown by Tang Dynasty poet He Zhizhang? Today, I would like to introduce another poem by the same poet with the same title, but it is No. 2.
This poem expresses similar feelings when the poet just came back his home that he had left from his youth times. No.1 expresses the feeling via the local children who do not know him and wonder where he comes from as a guest. This poem writes the same feeling via to say many older friends have past away, only the water in the lake is shinning in the spring wind as same as the old times.
He Zhizhang is one of my favorite poets, I have introduced poems by him, here are the other two ones, I have made the links for you to help you to review his poems. :-)
No. 1: Chinese Classical Poem 0063 & Shirley Created Music-0053: Hui Xiang Ou Shu -- Casual Writing After Returning Hometown
No.2: Chinese Classical Poem 0015 & Shirley Created Music: Yong Liu -- Intone A Willow
This weekend, I have a little bit progress and I started to write my new music at about 4:30pm. I do hope that my music and singing will be a little bit help to you to know something more about Chinese culture and Chinese language. :-)
MAIN MEANING OF THE POEMLISTEN TO SHIRLEY PLAY & SING THE POEM
I had left from my home for many years,
after coming back,
I have just known
that a half of my old friends have past away.
there is only the water in the Jing Lake by my house,
it is still shining in the spring wind as the old times...
