Chinese poem illustration: 大剑送别刘右史/ Seeing off and Parting with Officer Liu at Mount Dajian by Lu Zhaolin
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 rather than writing about inner mind with complicated writing skills like allusion, metaphor, rhetorical etc.
Through this farewell poetry(送别诗), we can feel the ambition a Tang people got. When I reading this poem, I feel my own homesick either.
Note: In the video, 别 is wrongly translated to departing , which should be parting, bidding farewell.
