LISTEN TO THE TEXTLISTEN TO SHIRLEY PLAY & SING THE POEM

Hi, friends, do you enjoy instrument music? In China, there are many kinds of instruments, they can play many different sounds. Some of them can imitate birds' singing.

So, today, I would like to introduce a new Chinese classical poem Ting Lin Jia Chui Sheng -- To Listen to the Pipe-Wind Music by A Neighbor by Tang Dynasty(618-907)poet Lang Shiyuan.

This poem writes the beautiful music by an instrument -- Sheng, just like a phoenix was singing from the other side of the rosy clouds. To be attracted by the beautiful music, the poet could not help to go out of the door to look for it. However, what he met were so many closed gates and doors, so, he guessed that maybe the wonderful music was from a fairyland with thousand flowering peaches...

The little poem has painted a picture "Looking For the Song of a Phoenix" with some music for us. Have you seen it in your mind?

As usual, I wrote a piece of music to match it and hope you enjoy it.


MAIN MEANING OF THE POEMLISTEN TO SHIRLEY PLAY & SING THE POEM

To Listen to the Pipe-Wind Music by A Neighbor

The beautiful pipe-wind music as a song of a phoenix
is flying from the other side of the rosy clouds,
I wonder which neighbor is playing the music,
so, I go out to look for it,
however, all of the doors and gates are close locked
and I can not find it.
Maybe it is just from a fairyland
there are thousand of the flowering peaches in it...
