One of the very few poems labeled with poet name in Book of Songs , the first female poet in the human history roughly 2700 years ago, a patriot with outstanding courage , dedication and love to her homeland. The masculine title Rushing Chariot becomes an alternative term for patriotism.
With the history background and story finally figured out, this poem become vivid story shining with historical figures rather then some doubted feelings and scenes like most of the poems in Book of Songs.
