One of the famous poet in early Tang period, key contributor to the final rules of Lvshi(律诗), The ex-owner of the famous Villa of Wheel Valley (辋川别业) of Wang Wei.

This poem is pretty outstanding among his poems, very simple, careless with his true feelings. The subtle feeling: the worry of uncertainty and bad luck shadows his long hot homesick.

渡汉江
宋之问

岭外音书断,
经冬复历春。
近乡情更怯,
不敢问来人。
