#SoftTuesday . . .Nostalgia





“My people have married me
In a far corner of Earth.
Sent me away to a strange land
To the King of the Wu-Sun.
A tent is my house,
The walls of felt.
Always thinking of my country.
Would that I were a yellow stork
And could fly back home.”

Poem “The Lament of Xi Chun,” (A princess that lived around 110 BCE. Painting by Zhao Guojing and Wang Meifang.
