Chinese poem illustration: 大剑送别刘右史 Seeing off and Parting with Officer Liu at Mount Dajian by Lu Zhaolin

大剑送别刘右史

Youtube not applicable? see video on Bilibili : 大剑送别刘右史

One of the Four Outstanding Poets in Early Tang( 初唐四杰), Lu Zhaolin is featured for his classical spirit and wording: through the simple wording, focusing on the story and nature world rather than writing about inner mind with complicated writing skills like allusion, metaphor, rhetorical etc.

Through this parting poem(送别诗), we can feel the ambition a Tang people got. When I reading this poem, I feel my own homesick.

Note: In the video, 别 is wrongly translated to departing , which should be parting.

大剑送别刘右史
卢照邻

金碧禺山远,
关梁蜀道难。
相逢属晚岁,
相送动征鞍。

地咽绵川冷,
云凝剑阁寒。
倘遇忠孝所,
为道忆长安。
